"UA Europe" Impressions #1

Kraków is a beautiful town and – centrally located in the heart of Europe – the perfect place for the conference. There are participants from more than twenty countries: Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Czech Republic, Ukraine, Germany, Great Britain ...

 

The talks focus on mobile help and general technical documentation topics.

The HTML5 semantic elements are based on the same logic. If there is a widespread way for web designers to accomplish a task, it should be codified in HTML5. W3C has defined, for example, semantic tags for div tags like header, nav, section, and aside. See http://www.w3.org/TR/html-design-principles/#pave-the-cowpaths.
