Published at LXer:

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has officially announced that the HTML5 and Canvas2D specifications are now complete and are now candidate recommendations.

I didn't see anything about CSS in the headline, and most of the proprietary extensions in use now (-webkit-*, -moz-*, etc) are currently CSS.

I wasn't talking about CSS. The HTML5 support across browsers is generally good but not ALL the features are supported yet.

Thanks for sharing the article.
