Picking up where Build Your Own Website leaves off, HTML5 & CSS3 for the Real World gives you a practical, concise introduction to the new features and best practices of HTML5 and CSS3. Alexis Goldstein, Louis Lazaris and Estelle Weyl take you through the new tools and features, putting an end to hacks and tricky workarounds. You'll master the new semantic markup available in HTML5, as well as how to use CSS3 without sacrificing clean markup or resorting to complex workarounds.

The book covers:

  • Native HTML5 Video: escape that embarrassing Flash habit by embracing clean, native HTML5 video.
  • Master the subtleties of @font-face, with type that truly supports and resonates with your message.
  • Get the most of CSS3 by tapping into next-generation CSS selectors and powerful new styling and layout abilities with CSS3.
  • Geolocation & Local Storage: use shiny-new APIs to build applications with location sensitivity and full offline functionality.
  • Building intelligent, self-validating smart forms your users will love!
