Hi! I am James Williamson, lynda.com senior author. I want to welcome you to HTML5: Structure, Syntax, and Semantics. In this course, we are going to explore, how you can use HTML5 to create richer more meaningful sites. We'll cover the changes in syntax from previous versions of HTML, explore its new semantic elements, and learn about the HTML5 outline algorithm and how it can help you when defining and structuring your site content. We'll also put what we've learned to the test as we build an HTML5 document that takes advantage of many of these improvements.
Along the way, I am going to show you some great online resources and ways that you can make the emerging standard work for you right now. I can't wait to show you what HTML5 has to offer, so let's get started.
