December 2011 Meeting Announcement -- New Web, Old Browsers

The next meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop will be Saturday, December 17, at our usual 9-10 hour. Our topic this month is New Web, Old Browsers.

We saw last month that there are new tags in HTML5 that let us lay out a page with native tags instead of div's. We also saw that the process breaks down in IE8. This month, we will look at browser behavior and see how these new tags can be made to work in legacy browsers. HTML5 is not an official standard yet, but we will see that we can use these tags now and with confidence.

In the process, we will reveal publicly for the first time a new, never before seen HTML tag.

We will also have a giveaway book, courtesy of the Windows SIG. PACS membership is required, and this time, you will also have to answer a quiz to win.
