Burke Holland on HTML5 in Tech.Days 2011

On November 15, 2011, Burke Holland presented in Tech.Days 2011 why HTML5 is the biggest and most powerful HTML specification to ever come out of the W3C. He also explained how to add drop shadows to HTML5 objects, how to create rounded corners, how to use custom fonts, and how to animate with CSS.


What are the webfonts?
The licensing, which is one of the biggest problem of using custom fonts, will not be an isuue whenyou are using webfonts. You just need to add a single CSS or script line to your HTML and some configuration and you are all done. Many like WebInk, Typekit, and Fontslive will allow you to use the fonts for a monthly fee. Using these services is very convenient for the casual developer, handing off some of the complications of serving a cross-browser solution. The Google Font API lets you use a small, curated set of freely licensed fonts by just linking to a stylesheet and letting Google handle the cross-browser and performance concerns. The following is a short list of some webfont providers:

3- http://typekit.com/libraries
4- http://code.google.com/webfonts
