Book Description

In this post, we take a deeper look at HTML5 and offer a simple proposition with a lot of complex consequences: HTML5 is both something entirely new, and yet nothing more than HTML was ever intended to be; and that once you really understand HTML5, you’ll change the way you code and even think about the web and your own web applications.
