Catching up

Today I started reading through the latest edition of Net magazine; it’s been a while since I last read this and things have move on a little in the world of web design and development. The most significant changes relate to HTML5 and CSS3. Looks like I’m going to have to get my learning hat on again and get up to date with what the new possibilities are for design. Although support for these is limited to newer browsers (Chrome, Opera, FireFox, and IE 9 once it’s released) most of the new stuff has been designed to degrade gracefully in older browsers.

The other big change is the massive role that mobile devices have now – it really is coming important to consider you site’s mobile appear and design accordingly. Thinks have moved on somewhat from the days of trying (with limited success) to get Fleming Forum news items to render as WAP in old mobile phones.
