We're still a few years away until HTML5 is officially launched. Some current HTML tags like <font> will soon be history. Have you made your site HTML5 ready yet or not? Have you tried using HTML5 to develop any features?

The font tag is deprecated but it will probably continue to be supported by browsers (and email programs) for a long time to come. Same goes for other deprecated tags.

Good day.
Actually, you can really start using HTML5 now, because almost all major browsers are supporting HTML 5 (not all the functions, but mostly - yes).
Here's the code, with which the HTML5 document should start with:

Code: Select all

<!DOCTYPE html>
<title>Title of the document</title>

The content of the document......

Quoted: W3Schools/HTML5 Introduction

You don't even have to use Google for the !DOCTYPE, like you would do in HTML4.
My opinion about HTML5 - simply brilliant. All the new functions seem to be pretty nice. The audio/video player is my favorite, of course :)
