HTML is no longer a set of semantic tags – it boasts a whole set of APIs which allow for a wide range of rich functions. In our lead feature (page 42), discover the latest features and APIs on offer and how they could be used. Learn how to build your own browser-friendly video library, work with Canvas, get cleaner code and discover five things you shouldn’t be using HTML for any more.
