HTML5 To-do List

I’ve been tinkering around with HTML5 lately, and decided to create a simple HTML5 to-do list to demonstrate some of the new features. Along the way, I realized which features would be most useful and added them. At some point, probably after hammering out the style sheet, it became clear that this was now more than a to-do list, it was a Task Management App.

Full Disclosure: I normally make my to-do lists with pen and paper, but I’ve been using this one for several months now and really enjoy the interface.

I’ll get into why that is so important in future posts.
