new semantics and structures to help your site become richer and more accessible
the uses of native multimedia for video and audio techniques for drawing lines, fills, gradients, images and text with canvas
how to build more intelligent web forms implementation of new storage options and web databases how geolocation works with HTML5 in both web and mobile applications All the code from this book (and more) is available at www.introducinghtml5.com.
