HTML5 and CSS3 (the latest standards for HTML and cascading style sheets) are packed with coding options that make it easier than ever to create web pages with the features users want today, from an up-to-date look and immediate validation of user entries . . . to audio and video samplings. At the same time, there are still older browsers and millions of existing web sites that require you to integrate HTML5 and CSS3 features with the earlier standards. So how do you learn all this? This book is exactly the practical approach you need. It teaches you how to use HTML5 and CSS3 the way they were meant to work, with HTML5 to provide the page content and CSS3 to format the content and lay out the pages. But it also teaches you how to use the HTML5 and CSS3 features alongside the earlier standards to ensure that your pages will work for the widest possible audience. So if you are going to be developing web pages...whether you are a web designer, a JavaScript programmer, a server-side programmer, or a rookie . . . this book is for you. It begins with a 6-chapter, quick-start course to get you working at the professional level right away. Soon, you'll be using HTML5 the semantic tags that improve the structure of your content and your search engine rankings . . . along with CSS3 features . . . like text and border shadows, rounded corners, and background gradients that give your pages a cutting-edge feel. And you will know how and when to blend them with the earlier HTML and CSS code. After that quick-start, you will learn how to make your pages work better for your site visitors by enhancing them with audio and video files . . . using the jQuery Mobile library to deliver content on mobile devices . . . adding jQuery routines for special effects like slide shows and accordions . . . and using JavaScript to provide for features like geolocation, web storage, canvas, and drag-and-drop . . . the kinds of skills that go far beyond what you will find in other introductory books.
