This is the first in a serie of posts about html5, sharing the various things I learned the last few weeks.
The last few weeks I have been doing quit some research on html5 and the various new input types. All this out of sheer curiosity and for a presentation I held just yesterday at iprofs for Fronteers. I started with the full intention of holding a enthusiastic speech on how wonderful everything was and that the future is now.
You could use:
<div class="article">Some content</div>
And have your cake and eat it too, as in: Support older browsers and use the proper semantics that html5 bring you. You could use this same technique for the various other html5 layout elements.
And maybe there comes a time that everybody supports html5 and you can than search and replace the various elements and finally be one of the cool kids.</section>
