Just another WordPress.com site

This week’s assignment is researching HTML5 websites in order to understand how the new tags are being used. The first site http://urustar.net/ has a clean minimal page website (as I was seeing in a lot of the websites coded in HTML5).

The links were attached to the same document, indicated with a # sign. He used it differently than what I did in homework last week…I put the index.html#… not # to begin the url. I do not know if this is a shortcut in the old html or the html5 function.

The coder used the new nav tag for the links section
