    Nice post, you’ve shared a couple of really useful resources for getting a good solid understanding of HTML5. I’ve read bits about it and have become very excited about the future for web design. With CSS3 on the horizon I think its going to make the web an even better experience, than it already is… Just waiting for the older browsers to get up to speed with things.
