Over the past several years, Mozilla's collection of developer documentation
for its own web browsers has turned into a wiki-editable reference of web standards for developers working with all
browsers, hosting a comprehensive, no-nonsense reference of HTML
, the DOM
, and more
. If you find yourself turning to this reference frequently, dochub
will tell you exactly how many browsers will support that new standard. Still want to use that shiny new standard? Modernizr
will let you detect missing features, and load tiny bits of code
to make old browsers support the latest HTML5 hotness.
and HTML5 Weekly

What the Heck is Shadow DOM?
Browser developers realized that coding the appearance and behavior of HTML elements completely by hand is a) hard and b) silly. So they sort of cheated. They created a boundary between what you, the Web developer can reach and what’s considered implementation details, thus inaccessible to you. The browser however, can traipse across this boundary at will.

requires users to install Frame in order to get the benefits of CSS3 support (among other things). CSS3 Progressive Internet Explorer aims to bring support for CSS3 in IE versions 6 through 8 via a server side script. It's early days for the extent of supported properties but there are more to come. If it's ultimately functional and useful long term remains to be seen.

Web-based Humor at It's Finest
Words fail me. DeCloak sells (I'm guessing) an HTML templating system that works in tables. But they can't make it work in CSS. The good news is there's no reason to use CSS:
Q: TABLES are for TABULAR DATA and not meant for Web Page Layout . . .
A: Last time I checked, most web sites use a database. And databases are just a bunch of tables in the first place, hence tabular data.

CSS behavior tag
and HTML Component files
are some of the new bits that Microsoft has proposed to the standards boards and which are already implemented in recent versions of IE. Of course, I only discovered them by poking around in microsoft.com's source. What do you think of these tools? It looks like it will make Web apps more powerful and application like.
