Adobe has released the Adobe HTML5 Pack for Adobe Illustrator CS5, its vector graphics software used extensively by designers of mobile device and web content. This pack provides initial support for HTML5 and CSS3 and extends the scalable vector graphics (SVG) capability in Illustrator on both Mac OS X and Windows.
The HTML5 Pack lets web designers and developers take advantage of the latest advancements in HTML5 through enhanced integration between Illustrator CS5 and Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 software, according to Lea Hickman, senior director, Creative and Interactive Solutions at Adobe. SVG generated by Illustrator can be displayed directly in compatible browsers and Illustrator can be used to generate CSS code for styling of HTML content.
The HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5 is immediately available on Adobe Labs as a free download, at http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/illustrator_html5.html .
The HTML5 Pack for Illustrator provides features that enable users to take advantage of the latest developments in HTML5, CSS3, SVG and Canvas for multi-screen authoring, says Hickman. The SVG and Canvas enhancements also simplify interactive web content development, he adds.
