HTML 5 draft published

After working since march 2007, the HTML Working group of W3C or the World Wide Web Consortium has published the HTML 5 specification draft yesterday.

As the press release states: “Some of the most interesting new features for authors are APIs for drawing two-dimensional graphics, embedding and controlling audio and video content, maintaining persistent client-side data storage, and for enabling users to edit documents and parts of documents interactively. Other features make it easier to represent familiar page elements, including <section> <footer>; <nav> (for navigation), and <figure> (for assigning a caption to a photo or other embedded content). ”

I’m thrilled and cannot wait until this is a widely spread and browser-supported standard!
