    I'm new here and was wondering if anyone here has used HTML5 in their work flow yet? More specifically for use on Safari via a iPhone/iPad? Ideally, I'd like to mimic the look and feel of an App like Pulse and wondered if HTML 5 is the way to go. Pulse is a news app that has bi-directional scrolling mosaic of thumbnail/ news articles

    The project would be web based and support PC & MAC browsers as well as the iOS platform (iPhone and iPad).

    Are there any other things I should consider? I have experience with flash, but none with HTML5. Should I stick with what I know to achieve the dynamic interface? Does anyone have other options I should think of looking into?

    Thanks in advance!

    I use HTML5 exclusively. Aside from the more in depth new functions, such as <canvas>, <audio> and <video>, it is much like like XHTML, but more semantic. Instead of <div id="header">, you'll just do <header>.
    If you intend to support iOS, forget using flash. Something like the Pulse app could be done with HTML, whether you use XHTML or HTML5. Really, it would be more about CSS and JavaScript for the effects.
