Quick, Update The Curriculum!

In a recent press release, the W3C has released the final HTML5 definitions. Looks like I'll need to update the vocabulary on next semester's final ;-) Read the complete press release here and the HTML5 definitions here.

HTML5 is described as "the cornerstone of the Open Web Platform, a full programming environment for cross-platform applications with access to device capabilities; video and animations; graphics; style, typography, and other tools for digital publishing; extensive network capabilities; and more."

I'd love to figure out a way to get my students excited about the developments in web standardization. Haven't found it yet.
