HTML and CSS Reference
This concludes HTML5 for Android. From this chapter, you should have gained
a large amount of knowledge related to encoding video and audio for the web
and mobile web. You should also now have a basic understanding about the
different ways you can encode media, and that you don't need a powerful
machine just to encode media, but simply a fast Internet connection.
This chapter has taken you through all of the new HTML5 elements that are
currently supported by Android Browser and how to use them effectively.
Hopefully, this chapter will prepare you for the rest of the topic as we begin to
explore interactivity in a little more detail. HTML itself provides the foundation
further into this topic.
In the next chapter, you will focus on the beginnings of your mobile web
application by creating the HTML framework. Throughout this topic, you will
learn about a particular aspect of mobile web development and then use that
knowledge to build and enhance your application. This is known as progressive
enhancement, and is a practice adopted for the web to ensure that your
applications work across all platforms regardless of their capabilities.
You will also learn the three different types of presentation solutions for the
mobile web, including using standard HTML pages for each page of your
application, using a card-based system where all pages are located in a single
HTML file, and loading each page using Ajax.
The next chapter is very practical, so load up Aptana Studio and get ready to
