I’m no pro at HTML5, but it looks pretty similar to what I would have done…
My only comment, is that since you posted this on CSS-tricks and Chris is a huge proponent of psuedo-elements….your “Quick Links” section is a prime example of where you could use the :before psuedo-elements to add the “-”. That way you could get rid of jQuery all together…
don’t apologise for English mate, I am not native speaker also (Czech Republic)
who cares as long as you can tell your point :]
good starting point … but
silly to ask do you know validator ? if no, use it
check code for errors ;]
Internal encoding declaration windows-1252 disagrees with the actual encoding of the document (utf-8).
use utf-8 isntead of windows-1252
in HTML5 you can drop these :]
meta tag, same as img tag, link tag, br, hr, …
these bad boys are solo guys, not having closing tag
so you must close them at the end using slash /
“in HTML5″ you do not need to use the space or forward slash on those tags to close them. It’s actually preferred to have an explicit ending (<br>); however since HTML5 is backwards compatible it will accept <br />.
As more engines/browsers upgrade, there will be less backwards compatibility to my understanding and the <br /> could be interpreted as <br></br> which could leave two breaks.
I myself was using specific encoding because of my language characters
switched to UTF-8 working good too
did not study this part exactly in the specs
I am used to proper syntax coding from XHTML days
sort of habit that suits me and I then produce more valid code in general
though I know HTML5 would validate almost anything, not as XHTML Strict :)
I do not understand how it works exactly but for Latin Alphabet and you can get away quite good with UTF-8
first time I worked on web in 4 different languages and was looking for separate encoding for each of them
then a colleague of mine says “hey use UTF8 wokrs fine”
to answer this for you I am not the most experienced person ;]
Regarding the UTF-8 charset: Æ, Ø and Å works perfectly fine. I’m a Dane as well, and I’ve been using UTF-8 the last couple of years without having any problems. If you want to be on the safe side, you can easily convert the special characters into HTML entities:
æ becomes æ
ø becomes ø
å becomes å
Æ becomes Æ
Ø becomes Ø
Å becomes Å
As long as you remember to set your charset, I don’t think you’ll have any problems – I know I haven’t had any.
Besides that your site looks good. :-)
