HTML5 is currently a W3C Working Draft and is intended to be the next major revision of the HTML standard. Like its immediate predecessors, HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.1, HTML5 is a standard for structuring and presenting content on the World Wide Web. The new standard incorporates features like video playback and drag-and-drop.

I attended two HTML5 sessions at the Silicon Valley Code Camp conference this weekend. HTML5 is a very promising standard, and the latest Chrome, FF already support some of the new tags. It will take 10 years however until it is broadly deployed.

Adoption of HTML5 seems to happen faster than you expected, right? I assume this is due to increased competition on the browser market (even IE10 now tries to be HTML5 compliant) and aggressive pursuit of HTML5 in the mobile market, where it replaces Flash etc. So I think it is a good time to start thinking about supporting HTML5 well in TWiki. It provides powerful means for laying out pages so that they work well for both large and small (i.e. mobile) screens.

Yes Simon, good point. As a first step, the skin could use HTML5 for better support of large and small screens. TWiki is a community driven open source project. Anyone can get involved and drive this.
