Hey great post and forum aswell. Lets hope that the final release of HTML 5 will have a better standard for lists
From the last time I have read about it, HTML 5 is still in draft form. I think most of the newer browsers such as IE7, Firefox 3 etc have only just starting implement it.
However what I'm more interested to see is the accompanying APIs - such as ways to handle the browser back buttons. Not too sure if you feel the same way but, back buttons have been a nightmare for me.
In the past I used to rely on navbar/sidebar links and links at the bottom of pages or posts, now I always include my links inside the article using targeted anchor text, and I find my site bounce rate has dropped considerably. One of my sites used to have a bounce of 82%, now with in content links it's dropped to 53% and think I can reduce this further.
it plays around with my searches. Everytime I search something and click on it, it would go to some random search engine site.Code:cookbook.com virus or something like that.
Thats one of the problems, however my main grudge with back buttons is thatWhy? Are they having a negative affect on your bounce rate? I used to find that was the case as well but I've been putting a lot of effort into making sure I have relevant in content links to my other pages, which tends to increase pageviews.
they do not go well with my e-commerce web applications. Back buttons are fine and
dandy if you are hosting static websites, but if you have dynamic websites and the
user suddenly decides a use the back button in the middle of a transaction - can
But yeah ... we will see how HTML 5 turns out
