HTML5 - Not yet ready

I have come across a very interesting article at www.infoworld.com about HTML5 and why it is not yet ready for deployment.

"The problem we're facing right now is there is already a lot of excitement for HTML5, but it's a little too early to deploy it because we're running into interoperability issues," said Philippe Le Hegaret, W3C interaction domain leader who is responsible for specifications like HTML and SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics). "I don't think it's ready for production yet, The real problem is can we make [HTML5] work across browsers and at the moment, that is not the case."

Al Hilwa of IDC agrees with Philippe Le Hegaret "HTML 5 is at various stages of implementation right now through the Web browsers. If you look at the various browsers, most of the aggressive implementations are in the beta versions. IE9 (Internet Explorer 9), for example, is not expected to go production until close to mid-next year. That is the point when most enterprises will begin to consider adopting this new generation of browsers."

The current browser HTML5 capabilities (out of 300) are:
  • Apple Safari 5.0: 208
  • Google Chrome 5.03: 197
  • Microsoft IE7: 12
  • Microsoft IE8: 27
  • Mozilla Firefox 3.66: 139
  • Opera 10.6: 159

Le Hegaret acknowledged HTML5 is viewed as a "game changer." Companies now can deploy HTML5 in their applications or in intranets where a rendering engine can be controlled, said Le Hegaret. But it is a different story on the "open Web," where interoperability is an issue, he added.

The article then continues to talk about Apple claiming that HTML5 will eventually replace Flash and Silverlight, with Le Hegaret disagreeing with such claims acknowledging that the use of Flash will begin to fade once HTML5 is approved in two to three years.

Investment in open source software will only go up from here

U.S. and U.K. companies and agencies cite quality, not cost, as the primary reason.

This year could be of critical importance to the open source software industry, with a recent survey showing a majority of businesses and organizations in the U.S. and United Kingdom expecting to increase investment in it this year.

A survey by Accenture also showed that nearly 40 percent of those queried also planned to migrate critical operations to open source systems in the next 12 months

Double borders on a single element with CSS :before and :after

Until recently if I ever needed to create an element with a double border, like on the example below, I would use nested DIVs.

I have recently discovered a way of doing this on a single element (IE<IE8 users look away)...


Equal-height columns in a 3 column CSS layout

This is an example of one of the ways to do this using left and right borders on the master DIV, left and right margins on the central DIV and floating left and right-hand columns. The bonus is that this layout is elastic and even though the sides' background colour is set with border colours of the master DIV, it should be enough of an enspiration to produce similar layout with image backgrounds.
