About the book
Covers the new HTML5.1 W3C Recommendation.
The first edition of this book was written in 2011 based upon the latest W3C Candidate Recommendation of the HTML5 specification. That is to say, the unfinished specification. In fact, HTML5.0 was not finalised until the full W3C Recommendation was released on October 28, 2014. Some features were added and some lost during the interim period. This meant that some items in the first edition of HTML5 in easy steps were obsolete, and some were missing.
This second edition is based upon the full W3C Recommendation of the HTML5.1 specification that was released on November 1, 2016. This means that ALL features of the latest specification are accurately included and fully demonstrated in this second edition of HTML5 in easy steps.
HTML5 in easy steps, 2nd edition demonstrates all you can achieve NOW in the latest browsers - all described in easy to follow steps.
HTML5 in easy steps, 2nd edition instructs you how to employ the latest development for web page design with HyperText Markup Language (HTML5).

You'll learn how to create web pages to display text, images, lists, tables, hyperlinks, forms, audio, and video - and also how to write script instructions that draw and animate graphics on embedded 'canvas' areas. Each chapter builds your knowledge so by the end of the book you'll have gained a sound understanding of HTML5.
