    Sure, but define "work"

    A lot of things "work" in IE, but is just buggy.

    Well, it depends on your motive.

    The message in that graphic doesn't seem to bear too much questioning. I mean, what browser does support HTML5? (None that I know of.) So is the implication that CSS is also involved here? If so, then plenty of non-HTML5 sites don't work in IE.

    But maybe I'm thinking too much. (I certainly have a lean and hungry look ...)

    fair comment

    it was not in regard to html5 per se, more in response to post #4

    my assumption is that most people will want to make sure that a substantial portion of their web site's visitors are not shafted by b0rken pages

    so you make it work in IE, full stop

    [semi-offtopic] my original post, with the picture, was actually added to an older thread, but a moderator split it off into this (new) thread... and i did not assign this thread's title... so i'm wondering if another kind moderator would please fix the spelling error, as it appears that i did it, and i'm pretty careful about spelling errors

    Ah, I see. (And my comment was just being cheeky, anyway. What you say is quite right, of course. )

    Off Topic:

    so I'm wondering if another kind moderator would please fix the spelling error
    Done! (Well, fixed some punctuation, anyhow. I'm not very good at spelling, but I don't think I've missed anything there.)

    In a way, IE is doing us a favor by not supporting HTML5 until it's actually ready. The mad rush to implement something that isn't finished yet will come back to bite us all.

    Assuming that steaming pile of dung will EVER be ready, or should even be adopted for use in the first place given the loosening of structural rules, pointless redundant new tags, pointless wrappers masquerading as semantics, further fracturing the already screwed up world of codecs in the name of letting each browser maker pimp their own favorite codec (instead of letting the user decide which one they want and which they don't), and general pissing on the ashes of all the progress STRICT has given us the past dozen years...

    Again, I can't believe ANYONE is DUMB ENOUGH to WANT to use it!!! The handful of 'neat' things it actually offers (the really neat ones having NOTHING to do with markup!) doesn't make up for the trip in the wayback machine with Mr. Peabody on coding practices. Carefully crafted for the people who until recently vomit up HTML 3.2 and slapped a tranny on it, and today just slap 5 lip-service on it -- churning out code WORSE than Frontpage did a decade ago.

    Net improvement zero.

    Which of course is why they had to put CSS3, CANVAS and the new javascript under it's banner -- NONE of which have anything to do with MARKUP. Remove those, and the Emperor is naked.... and not the fun type of naked either.

    But of course, it's "new and shiny" giving book writers excuse to squeeze out another puppy, let professional lecturers fill another hall, and sleazeball scam artists once again practice nube predation using it like another sick buzzword on the people too stupid to know what "web 2.0" REALLY meant.

    Lol, DS, as blunt as ever.

    Though, I do have to agree with you a lot. I've looked over the HTML5 stuff over and over thinking "okay, it's about time I start using some of this"... and yet I never do. =p

    I have been slapping on the HTML5 DOCTYPE (because I love it), but that's the extend of my HTML5-ing (well, and the use of canvas, but like you said, that's really more JS). I don't see much point behind all of the other elements. I mean, I get the point behind some of them, like the section tag, but at the moment, those have no more semantic meaning than div.

    But apart from that, HTML5 OK, right?

    I don't necessarily mind the idea of a "living" standard, which gradually adds features to HTML. When they are fully supported—and if they don't suck—I might use them. A few little things like the extra form attributes and and maybe associating an image with a caption seem OK to me, but that's about all at the moment.

    I'd really just prefer everything to be done at once, everything supported at once.

    If little bits of stuff keeps getting added every month, it'll be a hassle to keep up with. I really would love HTML5 to become a standard, along with CSS3 (mainly CSS3 being fully supported) but we have a long ways to go )
