Again, I would like to never have to use Flash again, but at this point HTML5 can't replace it for complex animation and media.
I posted examples of what can be done. I'm not going to do your dirty work there's a little thing called Google if you want more complex examples. You were trying to say that HTML5 and CSS3 can't do much of what you quoted and I was giving examples to disprove that. Google "@font-face" and "DIV rotation in HTML5" and whatever else you want. You may have to do some refining of your queries but that's normal. Here's a few more examples of what can be done with CSS and HTML5:
3D games: http://dev.opera.com/articles/view/c...-html-5-can-1/
Custom Fonts: http://www.css3.info/preview/web-fonts-with-font-face/
Using CSS on video: http://developer.apple.com/safari/li...CSSStyles.html
Web 3D (may need to download nightly build of Webkit): http://www.web3d.org/x3d/wiki/index....HTML5_examples
It's all there on the Internet.
There's no perfect way to do HTML5 but there are many ways to do it, there's only one way to do Flash content and that's not necessarily the best way. That being said using the W3C way of doing things means that most of the content will be viewable on all the latest browsers but one big holdout and we all know which one that is.
Yes you are going to have to learn knew things but a lot of what is being done in HTML5 just simply carries on from HTML4 with some additions and some deprecations so it doesn't take long to learn. CSS3 doesn't take much to learn either and is so much easier using stylesheets in order to reduce code use because it can be used over again rather than writing the same code in each page. One document that's called by all pages or two or three depending on what screens you're using using the "Media" tag.
As I say, simple is subjective but it's not difficult to code HTML by hand. It's like any language. That being said I'm sure Apple has something up their sleeves for iWork and iWeb so we only need to wait a month or two to find out.
