What Is HTML5? [NOOK Book]

Overview

HTML5: Everyone’s using it, nobody knows what it is. I realize that sounds more like a line out of an existential movie — maybe Waiting for Godot or a screenplay by Sartre — than a statement about HTML5.

    Short, very basic

    A short, down to earth description. I wouldn't stress so much the JavaScript part, but I will definitively recommend it for my (or yours) pointed haired boss.

    Rather pointless.

    This is little more than an opinion piece on HTML5 that was made into a booklet, as it's far too long-winded for a magazine.

    A Quick Read

    A plesant, quick read. Learned a few tidbits of information but it wasn't terribly informative. I would recommend this to someone who has little to no experience in the field.

    Factual but nearly-useless

    These opinions and rants about HTML do disservice to the publisher's reputation. They certainly don't make for a useful introduction to the topic.

    Some general stuff

    Nothing specific, just something about html5. If you expect to learn something, get sample codes or anything similar, this book will be a waste of your time.

    If this product is free, why is it necessary to give credit card

    If this product is free, why is it necessary to give credit card
