There is no doubt about it, HTML5 is the technology buzzword in e-learning today, but we’ve found many people are still trying to understand exactly what it is, and what it can do for you.
So, what is HTML5?
HTML5 is the name used to refer to the current HTML standard. This standard defines many things, but at a high level it defines:
- New markup elements: These are tags that are new to the syntax of HTML.
- Deprecated and obsolete elements: These are tags that should not be used. Deprecated tags will cause a warning if a validation tool is used to verify the code, obsolete tags will cause code to fail validation completely.
- Microdata: This specifies a means for encoding machine-readable labels for the content of the document, which can be exposed in a variety of ways.
