What’s New in HTML 5: From the Large to the Nitty Gritty

Hot off the presses comes a new This Week in HTML5 episode. In this episode Mark Pilgrim notes:

Since I started publishing these weekly summaries over a year ago, I’ve watched the HTML5 specification grow up…Slowly, steadily, and sometimes painstakingly, the HTML5 specification has matured to the point where the hottest topic last week was the removal of a little-used element (<dialog>) and the struggle to find a suitable replacement for marking up conversations.

This sounds like a good thing to me; the focus is shifting from large scale disagreements and issues to getting the nitty gritty details right. I don’t think we’ll have to wait till 2020 to work with HTML5 ;)

Make sure to check out the full episode for all the new details on HTML5.

We will if we still have to support IE…

I’m confused? That’s last weeks This Week in HTML5 (it’s from Sep 27). I started to read it, and realized it was very familiar. I guess it should’ve been, as I’ve already read it ;).
