If you don't know about the new features available in HTML5, now's the time to find out. The latest version of this markup language is going to significantly change the way you develop web applications, and this book provides your first real look at HTML5's new elements and attributes.

Even though work on HTML5 is ongoing, browsers such as Safari, Mozilla, Opera, and Chrome already support many of its features -- and browsers for smart phones are even farther ahead, especially iPhone's MobileSafari browser. With HTML5: Up and Running, you'll learn how this new version enables browsers to interact with JavaScript much more easily than before. You'll also learn how HTML5 can help you develop applications that:

-Display video directly in the browser, without having to rely on plugins

-Work even when a user is offline, by taking advantage of HTML5's persistent storage

-Offer a drawing canvas for dynamically generated 2-D graphics

This concise guide is the most complete and authoritative book you'll find on the subject. Author Mark Pilgrim writes the weekly digest for the HTML5 Working Group, and represents Google at conferences on HTML5's capabilities. Stay ahead of the curve. Order a copy of this book today.

Comprehensive introduction to HTML5 April 20, 2011
Like many O'Reilly books I own, this will be one of the textbooks I end up going back to repeatedly while I get "up and running." Pilgrim includes a balanced blend of context and code, which means I learn not only what to do, but why I'm doing it and how it ended up that way. Mark Pilgrim's writing is easy to read with funny and witty details so it was easy to upgrade my knowledge about this most recent technology.
Technical details are very clearly arranged and will stay close to my keyboard as a great reference. Not only that but Mark explains even some extra frameworks that can help you to build your next HTML5 code with graceful degradation towards the older browsers. I ordered this textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time.
