HTML tutorials

Wanted to let it be discussed that the HTML tutorials are a little out of date and really should be redone with a focus on HTML5. Perhaps I should say, this update should be undertaken if Treehouse wants to be considered up to date as a web design learning platform.

Any thoughts?

I would love to see HTML5 tutorials.

I guess they published the CSS3 course before the HTML5 as CSS3 adds so much more to your web design toolbox.

Updating would be cool, or perhaps a specific deep dive for HTML 5.

For the job-seeking and freelancing groups, a series of HTML 5 badges would be great. I've noticed that it's a big buzz word/phrase: "Do you know HTML 5?"

Having said that.. Several HTML 5 elements get covered in projects and other deep dives. I know I've seen the following used:

<address>
<header>
<nav>
<wbr>

and possibly a few others.

Not exactly enough to consider it "well-covered" -- but it's not like it's totally ignored. Going through the responsive site and interactive site projects, they cover this stuff.

For the most part HTML5 made several small changes to the way several elements are used. The 2 biggest for beginners are forms and new semantic elements.

If you want to fill in some of the gaps in your knowledge about about HTML5 check out:

Sweet, thanks for the input there James. I'll mosey on over to those links at some point here soon.
