The need to cope up with changing technologies is always the part of a website designerís life. HTML5 is the most used markup language these days for web design. Keeping this in mind, here are some propositions the website designers really dislike while working using this platform.
Using Multiple Media Tags
The audio and video tags are good but the necessity of encoding the video in WebM, H.264 and Ogg Theora to work in HTML5 browsers is nasty. In addition, it will require Flash for IE6 IE7and IE8. So why use the video tag at all?
Validation Tools- Slow and Time Consuming
Browser Compatibility Issues
The most frantic thing about HTML5 is its diverse range of implementation phases. For using HTML5, on-going document consulting, and code testing is a necessity. For instance, for a very basic date input field Opera displays a cool calendar picker. IE displays a boring text box. Firefox, Chrome, and Safar can understand a date is required offering basic controls and validation.
Misconceptions and Disorders
All this is not to outweigh the benefits of HTML5. HTML5 has no doubt so many benefits and you need to switch to it quickly if you are still thinking. However, keep in mind that the code will not always work as you have expected it to be on every browser that is HTML5 friendly. Being a website designer providing professional web design services to your clients should be your goal and to fulfill this you must be aware of every changing technology and its hacks.
