Hi there,

Well it depends what you mean by "migration". HTML/CSS are always HTML/CSS, it's just what specification your generated HTML/CSS is compatible with that defines if it is an HTML5/CSS3 site or not. So really migrating to HTML5/CSS3 just means reprogramming your site to use the new bits of the HTML5/CSS3 standards. You don't need to do anything new to use the CSS3 stuff but there are some new HTML tags you may want to take a look at.

As regards to your IDE (VS 2008) that is sufficient to write HTML5/CSS3 code (any text editor is...) but if you want intelli-sense and error checking on your HTML5/CSS3 stuff then it won't work. Neither VS 2008 nor even 2010 have support for the HTML5/CSS3 standards so while you can create files that use them and work as HTML5 pages and do work in browsers, VS tells you they are wrong/contain errors since VS works only to HTML4/CSS2 standards at the moment.

So, to keep your bosses happy I guess you could tell them that actually you have migrated to HTML5/CSS3, now you just need to start writing new code (or adapting old code) to use the new tags such as audio or video tags in place of any embedded Flash players or activeX controls.

Hope this helps,

I have integrated webservices for my web application. So if i want to reprogramming everything it means how can i integrate my webservice for this HTML5?

Right okay so to "integrate" with HTML5 you need to include HTML5 tags/code in your reprogramming. So first you need to know what these new bits are, how to use them and also the CSS3 stuff (which links closely with HTML5 but can be used on HTML4 or older stuff). I recommend having a look at these 2 W3Schools tutorials which will show you all the new additions and how
to use them:

Hope this helps get you started,
