Firstly what we’ll do is use the
nav elements to mark up the broad structure of the page. Doing this will make your site more accessible to real people who use some assistive technologies.
Next, we’ll make the blog comments form much smarter by using the new data types and built-in validation available in HTML 5-aware browsers.
Then we’ll do some work on the guts of the page, using HTML 5’s elements to better mark up blog posts and comments and show how to use the sectioning elements to better structure accessible hierarchical headings on sites that are CMS-driven. As blogs are chronologically ordered, we’ll see what HTML 5 offers us for representing dates and times.

Some sites “use” HTML 5, when in actual fact all they’ve done is take their existing code and change the DOCTYPE. That’s fine and dandy if you’ve been using valid, semantic code as HTML 5 is very similar to valid HTML 4.01.

The only difficulty I had was deciding which element to use to mark up my sidebar, as it also includes a search field and “colophon” information as well as site-wide navigation. I decided against the element, as the spec says it “represents a section of a page that consists of content that is tangentially related to the content around the aside element, and which could be considered separate from that content”, but it’s nevertheless content rather than navigation. So I decided to go for the element as the closest fit.
