If you haven't yet experienced the joys of HTML 5 and CSS 3, you're in for a right treat! We've known about HTML 5 for some time now, and we've been eagerly anticipating it's full release. Whilst we're still not there yet, we are at a point where most web browsers are supporting a number of features and there's now a light at the end of the tunnel! We've spent the whole morning going all gooey over what can now be done on the web!

This is a huge step forward, and with that in mind, you're gonna' have to excuse our excitement! In fact, this blog is no longer going to be a 'How To', but rather, a big old list of HTML 5 examples! So, let's hear it for HTML 5! WOOHHOOOOO!
