Hi Lary,

I've seen that HTML 5 is part of your book and I would like to know how much attention is payed on it in your book (for example: with how many pages is covered)? What do you think which kind of sites will have the most benefit from HTML5?

Thanks!

Dragan,
I think you'll find my review helpful. it discuses that the HTML 5 content is sprinkled throughout the book.

Jeanne, I found your review very helpful. Thanks.

The HTML Manual of Style is about web development and getting your content on the Web looking good. I felt that writing a book about HTML5 was best left to others who are closer to the scene. The book includes discussion of HTML5 elements and provides examples because I'm excited about HTML5. I skipped over several of the HTML5 technologies including, SVG, MathML, Web Storage and Geo-Location, because these technologies have a more narrow application focus and are not fully supported by today's browsers. Likewise, I do cover some interesting CSS3 properties like border-radius, because they provide better solutions than what web developers are currently doing to achieve similar effects.

No single book is going to give you all you want. I, for one, would love to have an HTML5 Canvas Cookbook with detailed examples on how to build various applications using the canvas element and its 2-D drawing API.
