A Simple HTML5 Template Tutorial

Following on from our recent series in HTML 5 tutorials I have coded up a simple HTML5 template for you to download and use at your will. Before you get to the download be sure to read through the example below and leave any comments if you would like to see further HTML5 Tutorials.

Now that we have an understanding of the HTML5 Tags, Workarounds (Download the Stater File) and a simple wire-frame sketch to work from, we can now begin to develop our HTML5 Template.

Take your time to look through the files attached to see how the template has been built. You can now go ahead and start playing with all the new HTML5 Tags and begin adding some more advanced code to the template provided or modify as you wish.

<html lang=”en”>
<meta  charset=”utf-8″ />
<link rel=”stylesheet” href=”css/styles.css” type=”text/css” />

<script src=”http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”js/unitpngfix.js”></script>
