I believe HTML5 is will be something big (many people believe so too). It might not change the way we eat or dress, but it certainly will change the way people develop web application and designing web pages for the next 10 years.
However, this is a not a HTML 101 tutorial. HTML5 is not something completely new. Most of HTML5 specifications came from HTML 4 or XHTML 1.0. With my limited time and energy, I will only cover what is new in HTML5 and old practice that we shall not be using any longer.
This is a HTML5 tutorial site. While I am exploring and learning HTML5, I hope I am able to share what I've learned freely.
There are two kinds of impulses, corresponding to the two kinds of goods. There are possessive impulses, which aim at acquiring or retaining private goods that cannot be shared; these center in the impulse of property. And there are creative or constructive impulses, which aim at bringing into the world or making available for use the kind of goods in which there is no privacy and no possession.
The best life is the one in which the creative impulses play the largest part and the possessive impulses the smallest. ~ Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970)
As of this writing, HTML5 is still a working draft. In another word, HTML5 is still a work in progress thing. The specifications that published in W3C grows and change from day to day.
Very much the same for me in constructing this tutorial, I decided not to complete the entire tutorial before I publish it, instead, I would upload bit by bit every other day like blogs entry.
