HTML5Doctor

I am pleased to announce the launch of a new resource for all things HTML5. HTML5Doctor contains posts about the various new features of HTML5, including example uses of the new elements.

The site is a collaboration between myself, Rich Clark, Bruce Lawson, Jack Osborne, Remy Sharp and Tom Leadbetter. We met at FOWD to discuss HTML5 and ended up making a commitment to spread the word about the upcoming standard and how it can be used now. That's right, if you haven't yet heard already you can use many HTML 5 elements now and even some of it's more advanced technologies like <video>. Of course, you can't quite expect all browsers to play nicely yet, particularly everyone's favourite IE, but we'll be giving the best advice we can to making things work.

If we have yet to answer something you have a question about, you can ask the doctor and we'll see what we can do. If you have topic you'd like to write about, contact us and share your thoughts.

So what are you waiting for? Head on over to HTML5Doctor to learn more about HTML5. Also, what would this post be without a shameless plug for my own article? Check out Understanding <aside> to learn about a misunderstood, but semantically useful, new element.
