Resolution



Question : Why do we have to move to HTML5 and CSS3?
Answer : Below are the main points becasuse of which we had to move to HTML5/CSS3–

1. VML tags – removed ( We made use of SVG which is the standard way of all the browsers would support for graphical representation of flows)

2. Xpath support – removed (Introduced JQuery xpath plugin to support for xml parsing)

3. DataIslands support – removed (Introduced Script tags for holding the xml content on the web page)

4. attachEvent – Deprecated and will be removed in IE11 (Made use of standard events like addEventListener)

5. Nonstandard events like onPropertyChange events – removed – ( Need to call explicitly the function doPropChange() whenever there is a change in property)

6. The OOTB style sheets were not compatible for IE10 HTML5 browsers. So need to change the styles compatible for CSS3 and the corresponding HTML
