Q&A for Developers

In 2014, the doctype and semantic elements of HTML5 were recommended in the E-standards for Training, with the proviso that fall-backs to XHTML are put in place for browsers defined in the test platforms that do not support HTML5-specific elements.

To help developers comply with the E-standards recommendations, we have created the E-standards for Training HTML5 review: Q & A for Developers (MS Word 847 kB).
