If you think this is HTML5, then you might be a redneck (or the IT equivalent at least)

I'm finding that the term HTML5 is getting bandied about by people who are in fact not talking about anything that has to do with HTML5 at all. So, I was thinking of writing a funny little article for this other site that I patronize with a title similar to the one above. I'm just wondering if anyone's experience is similar to mine, and if anyone has anything interesting to add to the mix.

So, I was thinking about something like this:

If you think invoking a web service using an Ajax call is HTML5, you might be a luddite.
If you think laying out pages with stylesheets instead of tables is HTML5, you might be a luddite.
If you think JavaScript and CSS is HTML5, you might be a luddite.
If you think HTML5 fixes the cross-browser compatability issue, you might be a luddite.
If you think using HTML5 makes you part of the semantic web, you might be a luddite.

Surely some of the ranch hands might have a few observations they could throw into the mix. If you do have something to contribute, try to be fairly nice about it of course, not that we'd expect anything less from fellow ranchers.

Well, sadly I wasn't able to quote any of the handsome staff and contributors here at the ranch. I did publish the article, just in case anyone is interested in reading.

And I still think it might be amusing if we got some more input here in this thread. I can always update an article!

Didn't see this 'til today. My (too-late) contribution:

  • If you think HTML5 is a video codec…
