Company announces preliminary tool for authoring HTML5 content with Illustrator.
Adobe recently outed a plug-in for Illustrator CS5 that provides some initial HTML5 and CSS3 support. The plugin requires Illustrator 15.0.1, which is the most current version from Creative Suite 5. Adobe states the plug-in helps designers to easily design Web and device content using the emerging Web standards. When coupled with Dreamweaver 11.0.3, the tools could help in development of iOS content. Apple is pushing HTML5 for media-rich and interactive Web pages rather than Adobe's Flash.
Adobe notes that the HTML5 and CSS3 tools are not expected to be finalized "for some time." The intention of this release appears to be support for current standards and will likely change as things evolve.
