As if the mainstream isn’t confused enough as it is, the W3C has gone ahead and unveiled a new logo for HTML5 and used it as the umbrella term for the latest technologies in front-end web development, much to all the standardistas’ protests. HTML5 is HTML but now, apparently, it now also encompasses CSS3, the new audio and video formats, and even more jargon like geolocation, web sockets, SVG, and […]
