A collection of demos showing the latest HTML technologies in action.
HTML5 is the latest evolution of the standard that defines HTML. The term represents two different concepts:
- A new version of the language HTML, with new elements, attributes, and behaviors.
- A larger set of technologies that allows more diverse and powerful Web sites and applications: this set is called HTML5 & friends and often shortened to just HTML5.
(Here is another classification of HTML5 articles.)
The larger set of HTML5 technologies is divided in several groups, based on the function.
Offline & storage
3D, graphics & effects
Performance & integration
CSS has been extended to be able to style elements in a much more complex way. This is often referred as CSS3, though CSS is not a monolitic specification anymore and the different modules are not all at level 3: some are at level 1 and some at level 4, with all the intermediate levels covered.
