    Its quite broad but not very hard to over. Many standards have already been specified and are only waiting to be vetoed through. Before they are are passed by the standards Organization, browser makers are required to put a prefix like -moz , -webkit before the feature.

    E.g When border-radius is accepted as a standard, -moz -border-radius and -webkit -border -radius will become simply border-radius universally in all browsers.

    You can't learn HTML 5 quickly yet because it still doesn't actually exist. All that currently exists are things that are proposed for consideration to be included in HTML 5.

    Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

    What he’s talking about makes no sense and has nothing to do with the question in the title. I suspect it’s a spam attempt or just plain fluff.

    I think that maybe he's poor in English and could not phrase the question appropriately. He probably meant to ask how to keep abreast of the rapid changes in HTML5 and the many changes to the specifications.

    If that is what was meant then the way to do it is to test things in the browsers where they currently work and provide feedback on whether they appear to be useful or not to those developing the standard. Once enough people tell them about the proposed tags that are not useful because they simply duplicate functionality already offered by HTML 4 tags then they can drop those tags and are one step closer to completing the spec.

    Does it require advanced knowledge of the English (or any latin-derived) language to put a question mark at the end of a question?

    It does kind-of look like he's offering advice, instead of asking a question. Better take notes, guys.

    Today, That is most necessary to learn technology as per latest trend. For learning HTML 5 you should know about basic HTML after you can easily learn new HTML 5. If you want to learn it online then refer this site for that. www.w3schools.com

    Only if you want to learn how to write a jumbled mess of HTML 3.2, HTML 4 and HTML 5.

    The two guys who own that site took on way too many subjects and while they are adding pages about new additions to the various languages, they are not updating the pages about the old code that is now completely different.

    There is a w3fools.com site that points out a small fraction of the errors on the w3schools site.

    If you are going to learn any of the languages covered by w3schools you'd do better to look for either a more official site (where the owners have some connection to either the W3C or to one of the browsers or some other major company involved in the web) or a site that specialises in just the one language where they have a better chance of keeping up to date. Had a big company purchased w3schools rather than just two guys then they could have developed it as a proper resource that could be kept up to date by having one or more people looking after each topic (the way about.com does) rather than the two owners trying to look after the dozens of topics by themselves.

    Also it isn't necessary to keep up with the latest trends unless you have a need for the particular code. HTML 5 simply builds on what already exists in HTML 4 and with most sites still to finish upgrading from HTML 3.2 there is little point in trying to keep up with what is propi=osed for HTML 5 (but which may be discarded before HTML 5 is finished) unless you want to help out with testing which of the proposed tags are useful enough to keep. Otherwise your time would be better spent on completing the upgrade of your pages to HTML 4 and so finally replace any transitional doctypes with strict.
