HTML5 - The End of PSD to HTMLConversion Services?
 
HTML5 - The End of PSD to HTMLConversion Services?
In 2009 the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) decided toconcentrate their efforts on HTML5, a new revision of HTML, ratherthan XHTML2. HTML5 is strongly supported by Apple, Opera, Mozilla,Microsoft, Google and other leading IT companies and web browserdevelopers. All this means that HTML5 is becoming a mainstream of the Internet.Among peculiarities of HTML5 there are backwards compatibility andforbearing error handling. In other words, with HTML5 websites writtenin previous versions of HTML/XHTML-CSS will not need an urgentupdate to be correctly displayed by even the most modern browsers.Now the main question for PSD-to-HTML conversion providers:
Doesn't this all indicate that PSD-to-HTMLservices will lose their importance?
 
Really, PSD-to-HTML companies declare "Code compliance with thelatest W3C standards" as one of the main promises and advantages,but with HTML5 there will be no need in such a strict validity.We believe that in the era of HTML5 the role of the professionalPSD-to-HTML conversion will only increase.Firstly, backwards compatibility and tolerance in error handlingabsolutely don't imply indulgence towards and support of an ugly -unformatted and unstructured, garbage, hard to understand andmaintain, and so forth - xHTML/CSS code.Secondly, HTML5 puts special emphasis on semantics anddocument structure and introduces a number of new "semantic"tags. The aim is to make the Internet more understandable andtransparent both for people and search engine robots. A benefit forwebsite owners is that the more correct search engines interpretand assess a website content, the higher the website is ranked,targeted and, as a result, more visible to its audience.Proliferation of the best xHTML/CSS coding practices and webstandards is and will always be among core tasks of professionalPSD-to-HTML conversion services and the main reasons for designers touse them. And new HTML standard HTML5 strengthens this role evenmore.

One more important question is
Will the PSD-to-HTML services remain the samein the era of HTML5?
Our answer is "No".Let's compare the Internet in 1990s and now - it is like apples andoranges.
1990s
In the early 1990s typical Web pages were written in the so-called academic style: it was a simple text decorated with the help of <h1-4>,<b>, <i>, <ul>/<ol> tags and a couple of images; technologies - HTML.Then more advanced approaches emerged: table-based websites withdistinctive design and color palettes (now they are usually described asobsolete); basic technologies - HTML/CSS plus some JavaScript.

2010
The Internet is presented with stylish, poly-functional and usablewebsites with strong interactivity, interoperability, and built-inmultimedia components and social media connection; technologies - XHTML/CSS2, XML, AJAX, open source CMS (content management systems) and blog platforms, etc.
It is quite clear that HTML coding for the Web of 1990s and 2010requires different sets of skills and even different sense of beauty andgood design. HTML5 could be a solid background for a new qualitativeleap of the Web too.HTML5 is developed not only as a theoretical platform. First of all it is ageneralization of the 20-year hands-on Web practice and is conceivedas a flexible tool for building the Web - as we know it now and as it
