HTML5 is revolutionizing the Web, and now it’s coming to your ebook reader! In this
workshop, I give an overview of three areas of HTML5 that offer great promise to ebook
publishers looking to expand beyond traditional text-and-graphic narratives: HTML5
Canvas, Geolocation, and Audio/Video. After a brief tutorial of the HTML markup and
JavaScript code used to implement these features, I will transition into some exercises that
put HTML5 in action.

For each topic area, I also discuss the current status of HTML5 compatibility with major
EPUB reader platforms (for example, iBooks, Nook Color, Adobe Digital Editions).
