Mostly "dedicated" div tags with different names and slightly specialized behavior. Which is not worth much to me. Especially since my web application doesn't really have "sections" or "articles". Might help Noobs get the hang of web site development, but it doesn't really do much for experienced developers - except to give them yet another way of doing exactly the same thing. Ugh. Last thing in the world I needed.

What is the difference between normal html and html5? Still don't catch it.
EJ Media (4 years ago)
+Adelaide SEO Actually not much - the tags are a little bit more specific in HTML5 so a div tag is now an article tag - still the same concept though HTML is the structure and CSS styles your pages

HTML5 is so much more cleaner. It's been a while since I had to do any HTML coding, and  I have to say so much easier to do. Thanks for the tutorials WIll.

Kornelije Kovac (4 years ago)
Are there any more advantages to new naming (header, nav, article...), or it's just about clearer meaning and shorter code?
thiery572 (3 years ago)
+Kornelije Kovac Good question. I hope someone can answer.
Kornelije Kovac (4 years ago)
Yes, but anything else except semantics? I can now use <header> multiple time in the code, but then i don't know which one is real header, which ones are headers in the article, etc, so i have to give them ID's: <header class="articleHeader"> <header id="realHeader"> So, I see no difference or shortening , when compared to:  <div class="articleHeader"> <div id="realHeader"> 
Will Goldstone (4 years ago)
its more that there's no reason not to - and it'll help if you work with others on code to use new standards.

A website which has the combination of HTML 5 and CSS 3 can create a revolutionary effect for website. Use this combination with user-friendly attributes to rank well in search engines and attract users easily.

It would have been nice if you showed a bit the css file.

riz chelsea (6 years ago)
Thanks for your attempt to explain this to the people. It a great help! Thanks for this one and your video as a whole. I just loved it.
Will Goldstone (6 years ago)
purely semantic as far as I understand, as the html has no bearing on the layout or behaviour - so it matters not!
Will Goldstone (6 years ago)
the styling is covered in the next video.. 108.. watch it!
Juan Tarrats (6 years ago)
Willgoldstone thank you for replay, I was refering to styling of the article and section inside of those articles and the aside tag which is not displaying where I like it too be. do you have any videos devoted to css styling of this tags.
Will Goldstone (6 years ago)
no you can just refer to section in the css.. only use classes in addition if you wish to distinguish between them.
Juan Tarrats (6 years ago)
great video but I have question , the article section pf the document , do you have to ad classes to each section of the main content,

great videos really helped me get to grips with the new tags. Going to take a while to get used to not using div tags for the bulk of my formating.

@sprowlta finish watching the video!

@ketochi dreamweaver by adobe, but you can use any text editor really.
Shakaama (7 years ago)
@willgoldstone oh and yes, people say "i can do all this now in html 5" like everyone says it. and on top of that, people are saying they don't need designers, "i can do it all myself now in html5"
Shakaama (7 years ago)
@willgoldstone isn't this all still very much premature? it will not be officially recognized for still some years. oh and don't worry, you can't offend me, I'm capricorn, i'd need a heart to be offended. and, as of yet, i haven't discovered my having a heart. it's just a matter of course, not to engender sympathy.
Will Goldstone (7 years ago)
@shakaama thats a strange and narrow minded view, especially as the part that hasn't changed is the design - the css has only gotten more detailed and powerful. surely? everyone needs one. Sorry to sound insulting but I don't think you've fully grasped what html5 is - you know its just mostly reassigning of tags at the basic level? when people quote 'oh this is done in html5' now, usually what they mean is canvas or webgl anyhow.
Will Goldstone (7 years ago)
@MrPeterBoyd good for you! thanks for sharing.
Will Goldstone (7 years ago)
@cybergrace7 welcome!
cybergrace7 (7 years ago)
Very clearly explained. Perfect for folks who used to use XHTML. Thanks, Will.
Will Goldstone (7 years ago)
@sprowlta If you had actually watched just a few seconds longer and listened to the tutorial you'd have realised that I was explaining the old way of doing it, versus the new way - with html5, and all of the things you are describing. See 1:36. Apology accepted.
Shakaama (7 years ago)
is it just me or is html5 very kindergarten? not that html4 was rocket science, but come on. and it seems to destroy a lot of specialists' jobs, i.e. graphic designer. who needs one with html5.
Will Goldstone (7 years ago)
@el3ctro323 yep.
Will Goldstone (7 years ago)
@jonasemdal doesn't really matter in practice - its a word!
Jonas (7 years ago)
Have you misunderstood sections vs articles? I think it's the other way around. You should read the spec from w3c
Christian Ramirez (7 years ago)

Reginald Mathieu (7 years ago)
This series is one of the most informative I've seen on the new html5 spec. It is structured especially well for newbies like me who are wondering which coding principles to apply when envisioning a project.
