    An old thread but it does highlight the fact of the slow implementation progress.

    My 2 cents is that the goal posts are continually changing and the "committee" is seeking perfection.

    Almost

    Recently WHATWG announced that they're removing the "5" from HTML5, so HTML (in the eyes of WHATWG) will now be a living standard with no drafts or call for comments

    W3C will still have snapsnots

    Is this something we should be learning now?

    Is HTML5 and CSS3 official released?

    Thanks a lot
    Yes, go ahead! This language makes working with HTML easier, because it has new features.
    For example, I saw today in w3schools, that they have date input types, i.e. "input" elements can have "date" or "month" or "year" etc. for type.
    Oh, and one more thing: the attribute "target" of the form element is no longer deprecated.

    a lot of developer help-wanted ads and job descriptions are asking for folks who know HTML5 these days, probably b/c of mobile devices, so I think it's actually a very good time now to learn HTML5.. my two cents...

    Well, firstly it's complex to get it right, and a lot of people want to have their say, so there's a lot of negotiation, and there has to be a lot of testing and then there's no onus on browser makers to implement the new language features, so that takes extra time too, if they ever get around to it. Sigh
