@scottandrus: I tried to incorporate the latest thinking in HTML5 and CSS3 in this series. In some ways, HTML5 is a departure (or, perhaps, it embraces the original intent) of emphasizing semantics over design . . . if you watch this series, you'll hear me hammer that point home ad nauseam. In that respect, I think it will get you thinking in the right direction. I'll also cover new trends (responsive web design, mobile first design), modern CSS frameworks and the like before it's all over. So, yes, I am confident that by the end of the series you'll have a solid understanding of the entire landscape of HTML5 / CSS3 development for web and Windows 8 apps. Good luck!!!
@FutureCoder: Cool ... make sure you give that feedback experience to Channel 9 directly ... I'm not part of Microsoft or Channel9 per se, just a "hired gun". Use the Feedback link in the footer regarding your challenges about playback experiences ... they would want to know this. They may not solve it over night, but I'm sure they'll address it in the next rev of the site's design. Glad you're enjoying the series!
@rgb: No worries, mate! It's hard to type in Notepad!
