W3C and the HTML5 Spec

12-18-2012 3,502 views HTML5 3 Comments

Ok, I know specs aren't the most exciting thing that will happen to you this week (and if it is, I'm sorry), but I think this is pretty cool. Yesterday the W3C (Worldwide Web Consortium) finalized the HTML5 spec. This isn't the final final version, but is the "feature complete" version, and frankly, is a good step forward. Those of you who did the extra credit homework in school should go ahead and start reading up on HTML 5.1!

    I know you're keen on docs Ray, have you actually read the entire spec?

    Not every word, but I have dug into it. There are some interesting things in there.

    Ok, well despite the contents being 21 pages long on it's own if I try to print it - I might see if I can read through it over Christmas - as well as the CF docs.

    Also I wont actually print it - I know that would be bad... 534 sheets of paper according to chrome.
