How to implement some of the HTML5 form elements, input types and attributes into your website HTML5 form validation and fallbacks How to use CSS3 pseudo classes to style interactive states of form elements The goal is to make this presentation as practical as possible and hopefully stimulate a good discussion where the audience can share their experiences, thoughts and ideas.
