I really don’t understand what’s the point of using html 5 with divs instead of semantic tags like nav, footer etc.
don’t know any better?
Hmm… edit button doesn’t appear to be working.
It’s primarily due to compatibility issues. IE7 doesn’t want to play nicely and using both semantic and old code just creates a lot of extra work for pretty much no gain. It’s just too early to jump on board the HTML5 train.
because theese don’t work in firefox2
And modernizr is what?:))Completely broken if you view their site with IE8 . That gives me zero confidence to use it.
Like I’ve said before, HTML5 and CSS3 are really cool but until IE7 is a non-factor browser they aren’t an option.
christopherjon saidWe use it in our next theme and do not have any issue with it. Internet explorer 7 is dead so why bother to make support for it, even if our under dev theme works on ie7 but we will not add it to the compatible list just because it ruines the experience. I so love it when people think they have better things than others…. like some guy who things has a cms better than Wordpress that is so funny.

I do agree, partly, but it is a double-sided sword. Once more and more sites begin to utilize HTML5 , users will want to switch to browsers that support it naturally (at least that’s the ideal situation). I remember observing a kind of revolution happening in the agencies, when about a year or two ago people started saying “no, we simply don’t support IE6 any more, [reasons here]). IE6 is almost a non-existing thing right now, but well.. it took 10 years to get rid of it, still? Anyway, i think that mentality of users evolved, and they (customers and laymen) are more eager to upgrade their software. They did it once, noticed the improvement, won’t be that hard convince them again, IMHO .
