HTML5: Periodic Table of the Elements

There are a lot of new elements in HTML5 and it may be confusing what tags are included, added, or removed and what they are for. A coworker today found the Periodic Table of the Elements from Josh Duck. I like it because it groups the major elements making them easier to conceptualize. Each element contains a concise summary of the purpose of the tags and the colors are keys to the following categories:

  • Root elements
  • Metadata and scripting
  • Embedding content
  • Text-level semantics (Web 3.0, here we come)
  • Grouping Content
  • Forms
  • Document sections
  • Tabular data
  • Interactive elements
