Visual Studio 2010 Web Standards Update adds HTML5 and CSS3 support

Yay!! Microsoft has released a Web Standards Update for Visual Studio 2010 that adds full support for HTML5, CSS3 and new Javascript features like Geolocation and local storage.  Scott Hanselman has a good write-up on this update in this blog post.  There you can see some more detail about what exactly it brings to the VS.NET IDE, etc.  Or, if you want to skip all that and go right to the download, you can get it here.  At this point in time the HTML5 standard is still evolving. Taking that into consideration, Microsoft plans to provide additional updates every quarter or so to keep up with new features, changes to the draft, etc.

By the way, if you still aren’t familiar with all of the cool things that HTML5 brings to the table you should definitely check out this free online book, Dive Into HTML5, by Mark Pilgrim.
