Link: W3C: ‘Don’t Use HTML5 Yet’
Paul Krill, InfoWorld:
‘The problem we’re facing right now is there is already a lot of excitement for HTML5, but it’s a little too early to deploy it because we’re running into interoperability issues,’ including differences between video on devices, said the official, Philippe Le Hegaret, W3C interaction domain leader….
‘We basically want to be feature-complete by mid-2011,’ Le Hegaret said. Once the specification reaches that stage, W3C will issue a last call for comments. The next stage would be the candidate recommendation stage and then a recommendation stage. ‘And then we’re done,’ Le Hegaret said.
2022 can’t come soon enough. If you can’t wait until then, pick up a copy of HTML5 for Web Designers and ignore the W3C’s recommendation — figuratively and literally.
