HTML5 [An Emerging Markup Language]

                              HTML5 is a language for structuring and presenting content for the World Wide Web, a core technology of the Internet. It is the fifth revision of the HTML standard (originally created in 1990 and most recently standardized as HTML4 in 1997[1]) and as of August 2011 is still under development. Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (web browsers, parsers, etc.).

Have you ever thought about including a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
everything. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips
to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with
pics and video clips, this website could certainly be one of
the best in its field. Great blog!
