HTML5 Doctor: A Little More Conversation With... →
An interesting article here again from the doctor, this time on one of the new additions to the HTML5 specification. The dialog element provides a way to markup conversation in a semantic fashion, and interestingly enough could be used to markup comment threads. Update: It can’t be used to markup comments. Now that sucks. There’s only one problem I have with it and that’s the...

I bet all you kids out there were just wondering what CSS3 you can actually use right this very minute, right? Funny you should ask that… (via layer13)
Softpedia: Firefox 3.6: Beta 1 In September, Final... →
Interesting news here from Softpedia, which if to be believed would suggest that even more support for HTML5 and CSS3 is on its way to the public shortly. Changes to the Firefox 3.6 nightlies were recently pushed that enabled the brand new HTML5 parsing engine, and support for CSS3 additions such as background-size, gradients, multiple background images and the rem unit. With exciting progress in...
CSSWG: Minutes And Resolutions For August 5th,... →
Here’s the very latest transcript for the latest progress on the CSS side of things. Mainly it looks to be updates to the CSS2.1 specification (examples only, no methodology changes), but hopefully the progress will pick up in the coming days.
Short Answer From A Man Short Of Time
@unfinitydesign: Has anybody told you that you need a serious freaking break after this is all finished?
Updates To The ping Attribute →
An interesting change to the specification here, it seems that the ping attribute in HTML5 is alive and well and now has its very own mimetype to boot. Pings sent using the ping attribute are now to use the text/ping MIME Type when sending the request, which takes the form of a POST request with the body set to “PING”. I’m wondering how this will all go down with the...
The Slow And Painful Process That Is HTML5 →
Seeing as it seems that HTML5 has slowed to an almost unfathomable standstill and nothing that amazing or revolutionary has come of the last few days of work by the editors, this is a simply post to direct you to the changelog for this month, whereby you can view all the latest edits to the draft specification.
HTML5 Demonstration Tests →
Interesting page full of HTML5 tests here from Remy Sharp, or as those may also know him, the HTML5 doctor. It generally does a good job at putting the new additions to the test, and makes it simple enough that most anybody could try them. I made a suggestion to him via Twitter that would make the web workers test a little more realistic, but we’ll see if it gets changed…
CSS3.info: Firefox 3.6 Alpha 1 Offers Increased... →
Having just reached 1,000,000,000 (yes, that’s 1 billion, or 1x10^9) downloads since the first release, you’d be forgiven for thinking Mozilla were running out of room for improvement, but here comes the first alpha for Firefox 3.6, and with a host of new features to boot. […] increased support for CSS3, most notably background-size, CSS gradients, multiple background images...

CNet: Microsoft Joins HTML5 Standard Fray In... →
This is the sort of attitude that will only serve to throw petrol on Mozilla and Google’s fire. Amy Barzdukas, general manager for Internet Explorer, decided to put her mundane input in on the whole HTML5 issue in a July interview. The support of ratified standards (that Web developers) can use is something that we are extremely supportive of. […] In some cases, it can be premature to...
WHATWG: Microdata (Part 1) →
Specification editor Ian Hickson takes some time out of his busy schedule to drop by the WHATWG blog and giddy us up with some information on the new microdata components of HTML5. I must admin I am slightly confused that RDFa is already taking a backseat to (another) new implementation, but hey, semantics will benefit us all one day right? One day, indeed.
Digital Bazaar: A New Way Forward For HTML5 →
A community driven petition here regarding the future of HTML5 and the current process of editorial changes and specification development. Most of the ideas are sound and quite desirable, although there’s a couple of weird and wacky delusions that aren’t likely to ever make it past the aforementioned link. Still, makes for an interesting read nonetheless.
CSS3.info: W3C Release Updated Working Draft For... →
In their renewed effort to make sure everything possibly misinteretable is this time documented, the W3C have updated the working draft for CSSOM View module of the CSS3 specification. The CSSOM View specifications provide DOM interfaces that implement methods used to get the relative sizes and coordinates of varying properties on an HTML document; examples are scroll position and page with and...
XHTML Is Dead? Nonsense.
I still haven’t quite figured out why everybody is going nuts over the death of XHTML2. Sure, it had some unique and promising features (or should I say feature, sans plural), but in the overall scheme of things it was bound to end up swallowing the same fate as the doomed XHTML1.1; without Internet Explorer on board with support for the application/xhtml+xml mimetype, it’s just plain...

With the usage of HTML5 on the rise with eash passing day, and the newfound emphasis on clean, valid, syntactically correct code, most people will find plenty of use from these HTML5 validators and markup parsers.
HTML5 Doctor: Legend Not Such A Legend Anymore →
Doctor Remy Sharp is in the house, and this time he’s talking us through the legend element and how its new uses aren’t all they’re cracked up to be.
