Episode two of my Monday morning sponge; this week it’s HTML5! I have been trying to get to know the HTML5 specification for the past year and now that it is in “Editor’s Draft”, we are getting closer to the spec being nailed down (it could still be months before we reach W3C Recommendation status!).
That said, many people are already looking at ways they can start to use HTML5 components now, so get sponging!
