Internet & Networking Earlier this week, Apple launched a HTML5 Showcase page, displaying several uses for HTML5 and related technologies. However, it turns out that Apple is using trickery to block out browsers other than Safari, with the end result that browsers with better support for web standards than Safari can't access the demos.

e. g. compare with result from
http://www.html5test.com/

From the title "The HTML5 test – how well does your browser support HTML5?"

Now let's look at some of the tests...
"H.264 codec support No"
"MP3 codec support No"
"AAC codec support No"

So now these are part of the HTML5 specification ? Strange, I don't find any of these on W3C's website...

I did complain about those to the author, http://rakaz.nl/2010/03/the-html5-test.html#comments and he gives an explanation of how the video codecs affect the score (it’s based on the number of codecs supported, not the mere presence of them)

Okay, then you're right that this somehow reduce the importance of the issue.
