HTML5 and CSS3 help lay the groundwork for the next generation of web applications. They let us build sites that are simpler to develop, easier to maintain, and more user-friendly.

HTML5 has new elements for defining site structure and embedding content, which means we don't have to resort to extra markup or plug-ins. CSS3 provides advanced selectors, graphical enhancements, and better font support that makes our sites more visual appealing without using font image replacement techniques, complex JavaScript, or graphics tools. Improved accessibility support will improve applications for people with disabilities, and offline support lets us start building working applications that don't need an Internet connection.
