My question is whether HTML5 is covered in such a way as to be useful for the upcoming Windows 8. I understand that Metro-style apps will use a great deal of HTML5. While personally the idea of a Windows Phone environment on the desktop is appalling, I will need to know how to code them.

Well the good news is that pretty much all of what you learned about HTML & CSS is still totally valid. Except for the fact that we're continuing on the HTML track rather than going down the XHTML path, very little has been "deprecated"; it's all *new* stuff. So you've got a solid foundation to build on!
I'm not close enough to metro to know how they are handling the various libraries. Would love to hear from someone closer to it how this is setup. Are these just JavaScribe extensions, or something more proprietary?
