Use HTML5 Elements in Today’s Browsers

I am taking John Allsopp’s HTML5 Live course offered by SitePoint (a great deal, by the way), right now, and he shared a neat little tip that I wanted to pass on. You can use many of the new HTML5 elements (header, article, section, etc.) right now, even in older browsers like Internet Explorer 7.

All you need to do is add an extra “boolean attribute” to the element, and you can then style them with CSS in almost all of the browsers currently being used.
