HTML5 Template

html / basics

Estimated reading time: 1 minute, 24 seconds

An annotated, updated HTML5 Template for your use, with a hat tip to Paul Irish’s HTML5 Boilerplate.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
<link rel="stylesheet"  href="styles.css">

Note that your site’s favicon and iPhone shortcut will be used automatically by the browser if the icons are provided with the correct filename and placed at the root of the site folder; modern browsers don’t require the files to be linked from within code.

I've used full and complete HTML to create this template; during development, HTML5 shortcuts could be used to reduce file size substantially.
