New features for educators and publishers in HTML

Apart from the extremely useful <video> and <audio> tags, drag and drop opens exciting possibilities for educational applications, performing functions we used to use Flash for.

An even more interesting element is the geolocation element where the opportunity to provide contextual information is increased.

Local storage is also potentially interesting for storing locally information that previously had to be held in cookies, Flash cookies/.sol files with a limit of 2MB. That limit is now 5MB and likely to prove extremely useful.
