Hello, my name is Ren Provey.
I am a full stack web software developer with a deep interest
in iOS, user experience and

HTML5 head

Short and sweet:

  • Remember that old doctype? <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd" OMG this/goes //ON//FOREVER//EN> is now simply: <!DOCTYPE html>
  • HTML5 allows you to drop the type="text/css" from your CSS tags: <link rel="stylesheet" href="/stylesheets/master.css">
  • Same goes for the type="text/javascript" in your script tag. The HTML5-ized version would simply be: <script src="javascripts/modernizr-1.5.min.js"></script>

All of those are good to use now, so with all the time you just saved, I think you can treat yourself to a little WHAM...
