Finishing up reading HTML5: Up and Running. It’s a pretty solid book describing some of the upcoming HTML5 features, with some great examples on how to implement such features now.
The chapter of Forms was really great. Using input types is something I will begin right away. Knowing that they degrade gracefully in older browsers is great.
Portions of the book seemed a bit out of place. While the first chapter regarding the history of HTML was extremely interesting for me to read, it really had very little if anything to do with what I was expecting to read in a book on HTML5.
Overall though, it does do a great job of introducing and explaining how to implement HTML5 features in browsers today.
