This video explains why you can't have D3 without HTML5.
- [Instructor] HTML5 is the latest version of HTML.…Languages have versions, just as software and hardware do.…Most of us are familiar with hardware versions,…such as an iPhone 6, and software versions, such as iOS 9.…World programming languages have versions too,…and as with hardware, the latest version…can typically do more than its predecessor.…When a new language versions comes out,…the changes are often small,…but when HTML5 was released in 2014, everything changed.…HTML5 is an enormous upgrade on HTML4.…
With HTML5, the coder can place a video…directly within a web page,…rather than needing another software, such as Flash,…to allow the user to play the movie, same for audio.…For our purposes, the big innovation is that HTML5…allows us to embed Scalable Vector Graphics, or SVG,…directly into our web page.…This in turn, allows us to create graphical elements,…such as circles, and assign them X Y coordinates,…down to the last pixel.…The implication of this is that D3 requires HTML5 support.…
