Markup Review

Another site from Weston Ruter at Shepherd Interactive. Uses new html5 elements for the header, footer, articles and asides.

Sorry what is HTML5 about this site? It fails on an extremely huge level.

An that contains a flash element (what, no ?) which isn’t semantic usage at all, and a NS declaration of http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml.

LOL.. Serious HTML5 FAIL.

That middle sentence has scraped out the HTML tags, and should have read..

An ASIDE tag that contains a flash element (what, no CANVAS tag?) which isn’t semantic usage at all, and a NS declaration of http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml.

@foo:
The HTML5 spec states:

This specification is intended to replace XHTML 1.0 as the normative definition of the XML serialization of the HTML vocabulary

and

The second concrete syntax uses XML, and is known as “XHTML5″.

Thus HTML5 has two serializations, one in HTML and another in XHTML: the XHTML serialization is called XHTML5 and its XML namespace is specified to be http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml, the same as XHTML 1. The Reser’s site has been developed to be in conformance to the HTML5 specification’s XHTML serialization which is just as valid as its HTML serialization.

How is the aside usage non-semantic? It contains the WordPress sidebar widgets; the Flash also has fallback content for accessibility and SEO. The use of Flash is not contra HTML5 since it specifies the object element for this very purpose. Regardless of my feelings toward Flash, it is a core technology used in the Web; as much as I wish otherwise, Canvas does not yet have the browser support (IE8) or tools (Adobe Flash) to make it an alternative.

Furthermore, XHTML5 has a number of advantages over HTML, including the ability to utilize XMLHttpRequest.responseXML, embed SVG and MathML inline, and it solves a Firefox 2 parsing bug.

I’m sorry but I can’t see how your anonymous claim is either true or constructive.

Got something constructive to say?
