HTML 5 – updates and logos and WAI, oh my! A busy start to 2011

For many people, January is one of the quietest months of the year. Here in Australia, the combination of Christmas, New Year and the hot summer weather is often a time when people take leave, with most people being back on board towards the end of the month.
