15 Useful HTML5 Tutorials and Cheat Sheets

By / Apr 28, 2010 / Tutorials

HTML5 is giving web designers and developers new capabilities that were things of fantasy with previous versions of HTML. Web pages will now be more semantic with the use of structure specific tags. Visual elements like rounded corners are now built in, and so is the ability to create drag and drop interactivity. Even though HTML5 is not fully supported in major browsers, there are those that are pushing forward and experimenting with its new features. In an effort to encourage you to do the same and to prepare you for the future, we’ve rounded up 15 useful HTML5 tutorials and cheat sheets.

    Cool!! Is it compatible with the major issue, IE6?

  • http://www.crearedesign.co.uk Damian Smith

    Thanks for providing these sites, didn’t realise how much you could actually do with HTML5.

    I’m just trying to learn all the new css3 techniques at them moment, although I’m not 100% on using a lot of them because of browser compatibility etc. But most of my new sites have a bit of drop shadow and rounded corners here and there. I really don’t like using fixes either!

    Which new techniques do you like to use and just try and forget about well IE mainly! Although IE9 is supposed to support pretty much everything!

    The more posts that are out there promoting HTML5 the better, as some of the posts above show, many people are still unaware what it can offer and that it can be used already.

    It’s also worth checking out HTML5 Laboratory – I would say that as it’s my own site of course.

    great to see these many advantages of HTML 5

    Well, it will be another 4-5 years before we can establish HTML5 as the default web language and structure, due to Microsoft not allowing IE to support it till version 9, and this only being allowed to be installed in Windows 7. companies still using XP, Many if not most still have not made the descision to upgrade, and if you go round coffee shops, they are all still using XP and IE6. with this background, web sites still need to be constructed to the mass market with the lowest common denominator. We are still needing to construct with browser detection and switch the display or technology accordingly. I for example am building a HTML5 game, that can not be down graded to old browsers because I am extensivly using the Canvas, and will not work on execanvas or flash canvas, but I make the descision to force my users to use an alternative..

    I can never have enough HTML 5 goodies. Thanks for sharing!
    Please, don’t talk about HTML5 replacing Flash. That is plain ridiculous. More some petty stuff, yet, but Javascript has done that already.
