Several years into Flash all but disappearing from the Web (and nearly 18 years since standards for its predecessor, HTML4, were formalized), the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) has finally published its Recommendation of HTML5 - the final version of the standard after numerous years being discussed by developers, browser vendors and the technology press. Better late than never.
Users, of course, won't notice any immediate changes as most modern browsers already support the most common HTML5 features. As designers familiarize themselves with (and integrate) new HTML5 features such as the video element and vector graphics, they are discovering a whole new world of digital possibilities introduced by this new standard - from the canvas element for rendering 2-D shapes and bitmap images to application programming interfaces (APIs) for o¬¨¬®‚àö√òffline caching and drag-and-drop support.
