I'm making a new site from scratch. I'd like to future proof this as much as possible.
An Adobe forum member has reccommened HTML5 Boilerplate. I did some research, looked at some vids and downloaded it and looks really good.
Are any of you forum members fans of HTML5 boilerplate? Is this good to implement?
just want to make sure before I implement all this into a new way of working.
HTML5 boilerplate is a great way to go if you want to learn the technology of the future. Unfortunately, the CSS is slightly bloated, meaning that you can remove those elements that do not appear in your documents (site), but it is always easier to remove that it is to add.
What Nancy says is correct (as usual ) in that XHTML will do all that you can do, but there is also no reason not to use HTML5 and one good reason to use HTML5 is called progress.
I agree, we need to move forward. The way to make our lives easier as web designers in the long run is to start using HTML5 and CSS3 now.
Otherwise, nothing will change. Lets not get in the way of progress. Lets embrace it now. Now is the perfect time. Today.
