View Full Version : Html 5.1

09-28-2014, 07:12 PM
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is still working with HTML5.1, the first minor revision of HTML5.
There are new features and elements introduced continuously to helps Web developers. W3C has released its Editor's Draft as of today, Sept. 26, 2014.

However, various working groups have already moved on to HTML5.1. Google is one of those various groups to support the upcoming release of Chrome 38. Developers have used the new main and picture elements in which the former "is intended to contain the central content of a web page" and the latter is the "container of multiple image sizes/formats."

HTML5.1 includes everything from the HTML5 and all the unstable features of it that were excluded. Anything unstable will be taken out from HTML5.1 and an HTML5.2 draft will be developed containing the unstable parts left. It will then continue to HTML 5.3, 5.4, etc.

Meanwhile, HTML5 "wasn't due to be completed until 2022."
HTML5.1 is set to be finished at the end of 2016.
"The proposed plan was, however, not universally welcomed. Some Working Group members were unhappy with the proposed treatment of their particular areas of expertise."

This specification defines the 5th major version, first minor revision of the core language of the World Wide Web: the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). In this version, new features continue to be introduced to help Web application authors, new elements continue to be introduced based on research into prevailing authoring practices, and special attention continues to be given to defining clear conformance criteria for user agents in an effort to improve interoperability.
It is likely, that the 5.1 spec will iron out any bugs, and add a few new features for us to get our teeth into.

Main Element

The main element represents the main content of the body of a document or application. The main content area consists of content that is directly related to or expands upon the central topic of a document or central functionality of an application.
According to the draft specifications, there can only be one main element per page, and this cannot be a child of header, footer, aside, article or nav. Cell Phone number tracking (http://mobilenumbertrackr.com/Mobile-Number-Tracer.aspx)
Using the Main element now

I see no reason why we can’t start using the main element right now in our sites.

The only two things that we need to keep in mind is that we will need to make sure that the element is displayed as a block element within our CSS file.

main { display: block; }
And for older versions of internet explorer we can use the following fallback…

With the recent standardization of the HTML5 specification, the core vocabulary and features are being extended in four ways: 1) As modules that have been removed from the original HTML5 specifications to be standardized separately (HTML5 APIs such as Microdata or the Canvas), 2) As modules introduced as HTML5 extensions like Polyglot Markup, 3) As originally separate specifications that have been adapted as HTML5 extensions or features such as SVG.
