        <li class="hvr-sweep-to-top "><a href="contact.html">Contact Us</a></li>

Some new form elements are added like ‘<datalist>’ which specifies a list of pre-defined options for input controls and ‘<output>’ which defines the result of a calculation.

Also, new input types with their input attributes, new attribute syntaxes with graphics and media elements have been offered in HTML5.

Not only HTML5 but CSS3 both has given wings to web application development.

CSS 3 has built using the principles about styles, selectors and the cascade that was also in the earlier version of CSS. However, in CSS3 some of the new features have been added like new selectors, pseudo-classes and a lot of properties. It helps in making your layout easily.

A simple introduction for markup is given here. Consider a section with a heading and a paragraph of text. We can make it more appealing using CSS3 features.


#intro {

          margin-top: 66px;

          padding: 44px;

          background: #467612 url ("bg.png") repeat-x;

          background-size: 100%;

          border-radius: 22px;


Here are two new properties which we can use.

The first one is background-size; it allows us to scale the background image.  If we scale it to 100% on both axes the box expands when more content is added to it parallel gradient background will scale as well. This was not possible in CSS 2.1 without non-semantic markup and miscellaneous browser issues.

The second new property is border-radius, it gives rounded corners to the element. Different values can be given to the radius.

Web Development and Designing with HTML 5 tags

It is possible to develop any web app from legal document software to music distribution software with these features of HTML 5 and CSS 3.
