Check out this lively HTML5 discussion between two Microsoft Evangelists, Clark Sell and Thomas Lewis. HTML5 is the next major update to the W3C HTML specification providing a standard structure for presenting content on the web. Thomas and Clark agree that the state of web development is evolving. In fact, HTML5 is at the center of Internet Explorer 9, with extensive support for web standards like HTML5, CSS3, Canvas, SVG, and more. Thomas suggests learning more by visiting BeautyOfTheWeb.com and tearing apart some HTML5 apps that can be found on the site!
