    Default How much should I take HTML5 into consideration while my company's website is being

    My company is small and full of quasi-luddites, but we're spending about 50 grand to have our website rebuilt. I've heard a little bit about HTML5, and I wonder how much that should be taken into consideration. I don't really understand the ins and outs of it, but will it make our site defunct before long, or will we be able to manage and adjust?

    There are lots of different things that HTML5 brings so this is a little vague.

    Jackmike, we have a development manager's guide to HTML5 white paper available if you'd like to learn more about HTML5. Download it here: http://pages.sencha.com/guide-to-html5.html

    Hope this helps,
    Jay

    HTML5 is great, but you don't need to worry about it if you don't plan on using its features:

    - Special tags
    - WebGL
    - Web workers
    - XHR2
    - Audio/Video tags
    - App Cache
    - Local Storage
    - Session Storage
    - CSS3

    For generic "web sites" the most that will probably be used are CSS3 transforms & styles, and audio/video tags alone with some special tag love.
