I Love You HTML5
In today’s post of Html-Expert, I want to express and share my true feeling to the entire globe. I am in true love. Yes! I fall in love with youngest family member of well-recognized HTML markup family: HTML5…. I just love HTML5
I am pretty sure that everyone is well aware with HTML which stands for Hyper Text Markup Language; it is the predominant markup language that has successfully survived so long throughout all programming frameworks as a building block of website pages development. The process of converting image from Photoshop to XHTML markup language to create a fully accessible web portal is called PSD to HTML conversion. You can’t escape from this step when it comes to website development. It’s pre-requisite.
Narrowing down the discussion towards HTML Family, I would now like to introduce everyone with its members. The family is blessed with many versions namely XHTML, HTML 2.0, HTML 3.2, HTML 4.0, HTML 4.01 and most popular version of its series, HTML5 (touched our heart)…
Now, I would like to tell you things that I get excited most about HTML5 which are as follows:
#1) Audio and Video API:
HTML5 provides full support of built-in media through its new elements: and allow you to display video along with sound on the web browser without adding any plugins. It has become possible only because of functional APIs that help in controlling media display.
#2) Layout Tags:
The HTML5 comes with many useful tags that help in efficient structuring of markups.
By using HTML5, you can easily define sections of your website pages as a layout area without applying tag which means the tag for navigation and the
#3) Canvas API:
Besides that, you can also optimize images by using HTML5 Canvas. Images are consider as the heaviest component of websites which affect web portal loading speed and therefore, you are required to optimize image so it can download quickly on the web browsers.
#4) Form System:
The latest version of HTML markup language has bring some relief to the web designers and web developers engaged in creating forms as well as user filling forms. HTML5 comes as a true savior to all those designers and developers who are facing difficulty in form validation process. Form validation is a simple process of the enforcement of required fields in order to protect and stop a form from being submitted without entering any text into it. Now, it can be done with great ease.
All you need to add the required attribute to an input, select or text area element. Thanks to HTML5!
#5) Geolocation API:
A Geolocation API is a new feature of HTML5 for geographical information enables you in detecting location of the users from where they are accessing websites. Say goodbye to the traditional method of detecting the users’ location via IP address. Using the HTML5 Geolocation API helps you to boost your website quality. Good news is that all the major browsers are supporting the Geolocation API feature.
#6) Additions to Semantic Elements:
The two new tags and are the major addition to the HTML5 great set of functionalities replacing semantically meaningless tags. The element helps in wrapping the entire article and the comments whereas the element comes to developers as another great spec of HTML5 enables document structuring and portability. You can have multiple sections within articles or vice-versa.
#7) Semantic Headers & Footers Elements:
While coding Photoshop to Html, web developers pay more attention towards semantic codes . Considering the problems of semantic codes, HTML5 introduced two other elements and that can be used marking up a website’s header and footer instead of often-used traditional method , or similar which are nothing semantically.
While this summarizes everything I liked the most about HTML5. However, there are many other new and useful features introduced in HTML5 open to take full advantage. I highly recommend browsing through all those specs and starts enjoying the benefits of all new elements as soon as possible.
