    Description

    If you don't know about the new features available in HTML5, now's the time to find out. This book provides practical information about how and why the latest version of this markup language will significantly change the way you develop for the Web.

    HTML5 is still evolving, yet browsers such as Safari, Mozilla, Opera, and Chrome already support many of its features -- and mobile browsers are even farther ahead. HTML5: Up & Running carefully guides you though the important changes in this version with lots of hands-on examples, including markup, graphics, and screenshots. You'll learn how to use HTML5 markup to add video, offline capabilities, and more -- and you’ll be able to put that functionality to work right away.

    • Learn new semantic elements, such as <header>, <footer>, and <section>
    • Meet Canvas, a 2D drawing surface you can program with JavaScript
    • Embed video in your web pages without third-party plugins
    • Use Geolocation to let web application visitors share their physical location
    • Take advantage of local storage capacity that goes way beyond cookies
    • Build offline web applications that work after network access is disconnected
    • Learn about several new input types for web forms
    • Create your own custom vocabularies in HTML5 with microdata

    Good read.

    Delivery was quick. Packaging was good. Book in good condition. Quality of the paper, print etc is genuine. Starting chapters give some history of the web, HTML and the WHAT working group. Some good anecedotes too! Jumps into code right away using the modernizr JS library for HTML5. Must read for web devs and also helpful as a quick reference.
