Hi Zak. This is my first post on JavaRanch. My english is not as good as I'd like but I'm trying to improve it
I have one question about HTML5. Is good idea to create web sites using HTML5 today? If not, how much time elapses before most used browsers will have support for HTML5? How do you think?

Piotrek.

Piotrek, that's a good question. Currently all major browsers support HTML5. Some better than others. If you'd like to test how your browser matches up, you can visit the following website using your browser of choice: http://www.html5test.com/. It'll rank your browser out of 475 possible HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript features.

As for building websites using HTML5 now...I do. By adding the shim/shiv you can create backward compatible pages with no problems. Remember, worst case scenario...if the browser doesn't understand a tag, it simply ignores it.
