I just learned that there is a new HTML5 tag that allows you to highlight text and do some cool stuff with it. It’s the ‘mark’ tag and you can make it any color you want and even round the corners! Of course this only works in certain browsers that support it. I’ve tried it in Chrome, Firefox 5, IE9. It doesn’t work in IE8 or 7. This is pretty cool and adds some neat design options. There is also another tag called the ‘summary’ tag. The summary tag allows you to show/hide content like you normally would do with jQuery! Check it out. Click the ‘Information’ text below:
If your browser supports this element, it should allow you to expand and collapse these details.

And for summary:
<p>If your browser supports this element, it should allow you to expand and collapse these details.</p>
