People no longer want to design various versions of their website for each device. They no longer want to install extensions or plugins in order for their website to be functional on mobile devices; a website with responsive design, that work perfect on all smartphones, tablets, smart TV, etc. is the best approach for that, and HTML5 has offered designers the possibility to implement this idea with ease.

All designers that are serious about their business are learning HTML5, and its use is spreading fast and with a lot of success. From image editors to portfolio websites, from animations to contact form, HTML5 creates beautiful designs that impress more and more people. If you are a starting designer and are learning your way around HTML5, here are some minor HTML5 web design tips that will help you improve the quality of your designs.

1. The a element used without the href attribute represents an empty space in which you could place a link or it can contain a content flow.

2. Address element is used with the purpose of creating a new content splitting concept

3. The b element represents a text span which it is used to attach a different style without any SEO importance like showing off keywords or other texts whose typography is bold

4. The cite element now represents the title of a work (book, essay, poem, song, movie)

5. The i element represents a text span different from the normal scope, for example a taxonomy name, or another purpose for which the typographical presentation is italic

6. The menu element is redefined to be used as toolbars or context menu
