Okay, call me crazy, but I’d really like to know if there’s any serious work being done with html5 using clever alternatives to divs and spans and targeting selectors without resorting to IDs and classes, all while complying to the latest web standards.
Maybe it’s just an obsession with minimalistic coding.
You mean ONLY newer HTML5 elements such as HEADER, SECTION, FOOTER, ASIDE, and so on, and not using any actual DIVs or SPAN elements, and not use any classes or IDs at all?
It’s theoretically possible but I can’t think of a single reason why you’d want that. It’s like building a house of cardboard — it CAN be done but you’re much better off using the classic bricks and wood.
