HTML5 for Web Designers


HTML5 isn’t as confusing as it once was, but it still isn’t straightforward. It’s an evolutionary, rather than revolutionary, change in the ongoing story of markup—and if you’re currently creating websites with any version of HTML, you’re already using HTML5. Harness the power of this essential evolving spec with help from Jeremy Keith and Rachel Andrew. Brush up on syntax and updated elements, and get ready to work with responsive images, microformats, and microdata. Through clear, practical examples, you’ll be up to speed in no time.

What's New in the Second Edition?

A lot has changed since this little book was first published. Cowritten and introduced by Rachel Andrew, the second edition highlights exactly how to implement those changes. From wrangling JavaScript APIs to revisiting the canvas and managing rich media, this updated original continues to be the perfect primer.

What People Are Saying

Rachel and Jeremy cover a very wide spectrum of everything you need to know about HTML5 in a short, easily digestible format. They clear up a lot of confusion about HTML5 features, especially when comparing old and new. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a solid overview (including relevant history) of HTML5.
Sara Soueidan, Front-End Web Developer
HTML remains the foundation of everything we build for the web, from the simplest page to the most complex experience. To properly understand this foundation—particularly in its most recent incarnation, HTML5—there’s no better primer than the second edition of this book.
John Allsopp, Cofounder of Web Directions
 Crack open this book after you fasten your seatbelt in Boston. Before you land in Chicago, you’ll stop worrying and finally, fully understand HTML5. As usual, Mr. Keith takes a complex topic and eloquently describes it for the rest of us.
Dan Cederholm, Cofounder of Dribbble
With superhuman ease and wit, Jeremy Keith always makes the densest technical concepts seem approachable, intuitive, and—dare I say it—fun. He’s done it again with HTML5.
Ethan Marcotte, Author of Responsive Web Design
