Hey guys, I'm unsure of where to submit my question, so I'll shout it out here.

I'm going to use HTML5 from now on my job and I'm unsure if I can compile the code on my computer using a specific software through my MacBook or if I can do it directly onto regular website editors.

Can someone help me?

HTML5 is just a new draft of the HTML spec - it's nothing drastically new. In other words, you write like you would any other (HTML4) code.

All right. I was worried because I want an offline editor or not require a server to test my stuff.

Thanks for your time!

Yeah, vansmith is exactly right. If you're using Mac then I highly recommend checking out Panic's Coda. I used to use Dreamweaver in my previous job as they had licenses but since going freelance I've been using Coda. It's so much better in my opinion - much cheaper, faster and overall just really well written. I think there's a free trial too.

+1 for Coda and yes, there is a free trial.

Like the rest said - there is nothing to compile with HTML. Just make sure you read the specs and documentation on HTML5 so you can make use of all the pretty and useful features :-)

One thing to note here is to check what browsers support what features. Not all browsers support the same features and when they do, it doesn't mean that they all support them in the same way (for instance, they all support the video tag but only support specific codecs).
