If one of the big tech companies says you're wrong, you might shrug it off. But when four of them — Apple, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla — call you out, that's when you're in real trouble. This is the situation the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) found itself in after pulling some shenanigans with the next version of the Document Object Model (DOM).

Look, I'll be honest. At this point, trying to predict a launch date for Amazon is going to require some divination. There's been no word from the '800-pound gorilla' and no comment on the speculation. All that potential bargain hunters can do is keep refreshing that home page.
But over the weekend Amazon Australia's HTML changed, giving some indication of its first round of product offerings and providing a glimmer of hope that that launch is fast approaching.
Updates to plain HTML aren't as exciting as say, your scripting / server-side language of choice, but seeing as it's the backbone of the front-facing web, it's a good idea to check-up on old faithful every so often. If you've decided to choose today to pop in -- great timing! HTML 5.1 recently became World Wide Web Consortium's "gold standard".
If you cut your chops on the web during the era of hand-coded HTML websites, then you definitely know that the most important part of a good site are the GIFs. How else would you notify your readers that your site is still "under construction"? GifCities helps you find those GIFs from the old World Wide Web.
You don't have to fire up Xcode or download the Android SDK to build an app for yourself that you can use anywhere. For less complex programs -- in my case, a companion app for a board game -- you can open your web development IDE of choice and build something that should be more than adequate for your needs (and shareable if required).
Learning HTML is important for web development, whether you want to build a personal web site, or you're looking to make a career out of it. It's important to commit important tags and terms to memory, but it's also important to make sure you're not using outdated tags and code. This cheat sheet makes sure you don't.
The infant daughter of a Sydney-based web developer has just made headlines for her predilection for HTML coding. While most toddlers stick to picture books, 17-month old Mia prefers HTML tags on her iPad: she can even identify the tags she has seen on her mother’s computer screen. Mia is obviously a special case, but it's not that uncommon for people in the dev community to begin coding at an early age. Were you a prodigy too?
Hi Lifehacker, I am a major geek and love fixing friends' laptops and phones and designing stuff for them. I've been asked to design a website for a company; I'm only a novice with HTML. How much should I charge to build them a website, considering it's my first time professionally? Thanks, Budding Builder
Google heavily promotes the WebP image format as a means of shrinking online image sizes, but not all graphics programs can easily create it. If you need a WebP image, you can easily create one online using a Google URL hack.
We recently told you about Mozilla's new Webmaker projects that teach you how to code, and the first one is ready for a test drive right now. Thimble is an easy to use, in-browser HTML editor that shows you the finished product right alongside your code, so you can learn as you go.
