Web 2.0 InfoWorld's Peter Wayner discusses the 11 hard truths Web developers must accept in making the most of HTML5 -- especially those who are looking to leverage HTML5 in hopes of unseating native apps. 'The truth is, despite its powerful capabilities, HTML5 isn't the solution for every problem.

The 12th hard truth. (For non-web progammers)

HTML5 is a press buzzword.
When they refer to HTML5 most of them really mean HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript.
