Recording of HTML5 and CSS3 Webinar Now Available Online and in iTunes

Held on 8 March, this webinar provided an overview of these two new Web development technologies that are revolutionizing the Web development and design worlds.

In this webinar, author and Web design specialist Christopher Schmitt revealed what you 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. 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 content.

Christopher Schmitt is the founder of Heat Vision, a small new media publishing and design firm, and an award-winning Web designer who has been working with the Web since 1993. As a sought-after speaker and trainer, Christopher regularly demonstrates the use and benefits of practical standards-based designs. He is co-lead of the Adobe Task Force for the Web Standards Project (WaSP) in addition to being a contributing member of its Education Task Force. Author of numerous Web design and digital imaging books, including Adapting to Web Standards: CSS and Ajax for Big Sites and CSS Cookbook, Christopher has also written for New Architect Magazine, A List Apart, Digital Web and Web Reference.

OCLC Research and the OCLC Developer Network were 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.
