Why learn HTML5?
This here is the million-dollar question. There are lots of ways to enter the web development field, so why choose HTML 5 as your introduction? The most obvious reason is that it is now the standard for web designer. Wherever you go and whatever you do, you should ideally know HTML 5 as long as you are in this industry.
Learning HTML 5 means that you will be able to work more closely with global web development standards, like other designers. You will also be able to find a lot more support for your work, and the applications and websites you build will be supported by the latest web browsers.
But why did HTML 5 become the industry standard in the first place? Well, because of the benefits that it offered. And to understand those benefits, we need to compare it to the preceding markup language, HTML 4.
HTML 5 brought a lot of the new additions and important changes to the HTML language that not only made it beneficial, but even crucial to switch over to the new language. At surface level, however, you will find it difficult to compare the two versions.
On viewing the HTML 5 draft, you will see that the error handling procedures have been corrected and featured elements have been added. From a browser developer’s perspective, HTML 5 comes with new specifications to render default web pages that they can all enjoy.
In addition, HTML 5 comes with several new elements for representing new digital media. These include the
Before you begin this program by EDUCBA, it’s important to understand that HTML 5 is not one large single thing. It is, in fact, a collection of many things, or features. According to some people, HMTL 5 does not support older browsers, but this statement in itself is misleading. There is no such thing as detecting ‘HTML 5 support’ as a whole. You can, however, detect support for HTML 5 features such as geo-location, video or canvas.
About the DOM
The DOM is essential to HTML 5, and you have to know this before you learn more about HTML 5. In HTML 5, you do not just define a video tag, but also a DOM API corresponding to video objects in the model. This API can be used to detect support for various video formats, mute audio, pause or play a video, track how much video has been downloaded. It offers everything needed for a rich user experience across the video tag.
The predecessor to HTML 5 was definitely the most successful markup, and HTML 5 builds on that. Which means that you do not have to get rid of the older markup. You also do not have to relearn the things that you know already. And if you have a web application that worked in HMTL 4, it would also work in HTML 5. What HTML 5 does is improve your applications.
For instance, HTML 5 supports all of HTML 4’s form controls and adds some input controls too. Some of these additions are long overdue, like date pickers and sliders. Other additions are a little more subtle, like an email input type that looks similar to a text box, but mobile browsers customize the onscreen keyboard for making it easier to enter an email address.
Meanwhile, older browsers not supporting the email input type will process it as a normal text field and the form still works without adding any scripting hacks or markup changes. You can make improvements to your web forms right now, even if some of your visitors remain stuck with older browsers.
HTML 5 is easy to ‘upgrade’ to. All you have to do is change your doctype, which is right on the first line of your HTML page. In previous versions of HTML, you had a lot of different doctypes to choose from and your selection was based on what kind of page you were making.
If, for some reason, you are still wondering if you should take the leap and learn HTML 5, remember that most developers and industry players have already taken that leap. HTML 5 is already pretty well-supported whether you want to build offline-working web applications, design better forms, add video to your website or draw on a canvas.
Mobile browsers as well as major ones like Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera already support HTML 5 features like local storage, geo-location, video and canvas. Google also even supports micro-data annotations. Even Microsoft, whose Internet Explorer is known to always be at the tail end of standards support, already supports most HTML 5 features in its current Internet Explorer 9 browser.
Even W3C, the organization established to steward and direct the development of web standards, decided that HTML 5 is the way forward for the internet. At the end of 2009, it expired its XHTML 2 Working Group charter, instead focusing its resources on the HTML Working Group to accelerate HTML 5’s progress.
