Sample text

In a somewhat bolder move, the WHATWG simply dropped the numeral 5, renaming it simply HTML. This actually brings it much closer to reality, in the sense that specifications such as HTML are always evolving and never completely supported by any browser. In this book, I just use the term HTML for the most part. You can assume that any mention of HTML5 refers to the actual W3C specification called HTML5. Using HTML5 for Games Many features from the HTML5 specification have applications in game development, but one of the first features to gain widespread popularity was the canvas element.

Some features are missing, however, because VML does not perfectly overlap the canvas specification and lacks support for, for example, patterns and clipping paths. Other polyfills use Flash or Silverlight to get even closer to the full canvas API, letting you use advanced features like image data access and compositing effects. With all these different options, picking the right fallback solutions is no easy task. Depending on the target platforms, sometimes even the polyfills need fallbacks. To make things easier, you can turn to Modernizr’s built-in script loader.
