HTML5 is the latest version of the HTML standard, offering easy ways to add semantic markup and application-like features such as video without proprietary plug-ins, drag-and-drop, offline data storage, and more. CSS3 extends earlier Cascading Style Sheet standards for managing layout, colors, etc., with new features designed to optimize HTML5 Web content.

In this webinar, author and Web design specialist Christopher Schmitt will reveal what attendees need to re-learn about markup, to understand how to incorporate new HTML5 elements and to embrace the new creative freedoms of new Web typography and CSS3.

Webinar participation is free and open to all but advanced registration is required. Register here* to attend this free webinar via WebEx on 8 March at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (UTC 19:30).

OCLC Research and the OCLC Developer Network are pleased to jointly sponsor this ninth webinar in the OCLC Research Technical Advances for Innovation in Cultural Heritage Institutions (TAI CHI) Webinar Series developed to highlight specific innovative applications, often locally developed, that libraries, museums and archives may find effective in their own environments, as well as to teach technical staff new technologies and skills. Recordings of these webinars are made available on the OCLC Research Web site and in iTunes.
