Summary The book covers all major web standards for markup, style sheets, web typography, web syndication, semantic annotations, and accessibility and serves as a guide to standards for the World Wide Web, demonstrating the implementation of new technologies to address growing user expectations. It presents guides based on solid design principles and best practices, and shows the most common web development tools and web design frameworks. You will master HTML5 and its XML serialization, XHTML5, structuring and multimedia elements, HTML5 APIs, and understand the standardization process of HTML 5.1, HTML 5.2, and future HTML5 versions. You'll learn: responsive Web design techniques to create mobile-friendly web sites, "Mobile First" approach; HTML5 APIs, CSS3 properties, and jQuery functions; cutting-edge technologies for robustness, accessibility, machine-readability, and usability; how to write structured data as HTML5 Microdata for Google Rich Snippets. -- Edited summary from book.
