I've finally migrated my blog to HTML5. I learned lots.
<footer> tags make everything seem more organized.
I'm not sure if
<time> tags are worth all the fuss. They
don't work with historic dates. I would love them if one could change the format
<time> dates using CSS. However, as far as I can tell, it
<figcaption> also do a lot
to make a page more structured. I can now style figures more consistently
instead of having a bunch of images without rime or reason. Captions are now
logically associated with the image they're for.
Porting wasn't difficult and there's lots of excellent documentation on the web about HTML5. I'll let you find it though.
