HTML5 Working Draft Released

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2008

Today W3C released the first draft for the next generation HTML language. There are plenty of differences including lots of new semantic tags (header, footer etc) , couple of APIs (2D drawing, drag and drop, network), new events and other cool stuff. Of course the guys have done great work with revising the language structure (cleaning up some tags and attributes) and still achieving backwards compatibility. Also I liked the idea of making HTML5 a XML language.
