[Pro] HTML5?

I’ve been reading a little about “HTML5,” an apparent (and eventual) replacement for HTML 4, and one that in some fashion I gather Apple has involvement with. Google is into it too, somehow.

Is this anything any of us need worry about in terms of Freeway?

Hi Laura,

No need to worry at all. The HTML specs are still being drafted so consequently there are still no standards in place. Most browsers are adopting the new features that are being introduced all the time so that people can try them out (excluding IE, but perhaps this will change with IE9). These features won’t work across the board though and are still subject to change so it’s debatable whether you should use them in your sites (currently Freeway won’t automatically create them for you, since they are not standards compliant).

Hope this helps,

Joe

Thanks, Joe. I’m not a coder, so anytime I read about something new that might require me to become one, I do a mini panic. Thanks for talking me off the ledge.
