Question HTML Tags and CSS Selectors

Hi!

Amazon's Kindle Publishing Guidelines state that KF8 supports HTML 5 and CSS 3. Are there any HTML tags or CSS selectors that should not be used (e.g., table)?

Thank you!

Dr. T

Here is a list of the new tags introduced in HTML5
You would probably use Audio And Video tags mostly.
As for CSS 3 you would probably want to familiar yourself with:
Text effects, 2d/3d transform, box shadow, border radius etc... you can have a go at CSS3 Introduction at w3schools to see what's new.

BTW, Kindles also support some selectors not listed in the publishing guidelines. For more information see this old post.
However, if you plan to submit your books to KDP, you may want to stick to the official list.

There's also a big difference between what is supported in KF8-capable devices and what kindlegen et al can translate into a usable form for pre-KF8 readers. The KF8 readers just run WebKit with some glue on top, and WebKit has always supported a much broader range of selectors than Amazon officially supports.

However, not all of those pseudoclasses are supported by the kindlegen's relatively limited CSS to HTML translation engine, so if you use any pseudoclasses that aren't on the supported list for any styles that should be applied to MOBI content, you're in for a world of hurt.
