Is anyone here familiar with HTML5 yet? Maybe I'm just not in the loop enough; but do browsers recognize this yet (or at least newer versions)? I'm interested in learning HTML5, but there's no point unless browsers are using it. Sorry if I haven't heard any news about it, but your help is appreciated.

Theses days, I exitate a lot... should I jump into html5, or wait and stay in my good old xhtml
I think a lot of person have the exact same dilema as you.

Here are some number about how much browser support html5 The HTML5 test - How well does your browser support HTML5?
Personally, I'll wait a little bit, since a lot of person are still with ie6 - 7.
My guess is that every browser will be 100% compatible with html5 in about 30years (just before html9 come out).

And of course, it depend on your website.
If you make a website to learn programming, most of them will support html5
If you make a website for the governement or old people, you better stick to html4 or xhtml

Yeah, I'm not sure either. I think I will wait on the HTML5, and just wait it out.

My website is a creative writing/literature website (once all completed), so I don't think I'll be needing HTML5 *just* yet.

Unfortunately, those scores don't indicate which features passed/failed. As usual, you write your code, then test the heck out of it on various browsers to figure out what breaks, with the plan being that IE will suck worst.

IE is going to be the biggest pain, of all. I dislike IE with a passion, and I don't think that will EVER change. With ANY updates of it.

HTML5 is not even fully written. It is dominated by gimmicks, catch phrases, and the replacement for everything from flash to a Linux virtual machine (JS+canvas+webgl)

All new problems require investigation, and so if errors are problems, try to learn as much as you can and report back.

Ah, well, then I'm definitely not going that direction yet. ;P That is, if I ever do.

It provides some nice structure for web pages, however I would look at the canvas element if anything. HTML5 video, and JS having super powers over it, are at least worthy to look at for future implementation. It is supported by most browsers.

What are you talking about? HTML5 is being developed by W3C. ECMAScript (JavaScript) is part of the specification, but hardly all of it.

I would recommend learning JavaScript, if you (anyone) haven't yet, because HTML5 wouldn't be HTML5 (or would it? well, at least not as HTML5) without it, even if it still didn't fully come out yet.
