Adobe has launched an HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5. The pack provides initial support for HTML5 and CSS3, and extends the scalable vector graphics (SVG) capability in Illustrator itself. The company says the pack makes it easier to design, deliver and optimize compelling content for mobile devices and the web.
"By delivering this extension and supporting open standards, Adobe helps developers, publishers and designers to make their own choices about how to create, distribute and access content," a representative for Adobe tells WebProNews.
"Producing graphical web content that can be viewed across mobile devices has been tricky, with devices varying greatly when it comes to screen size and performance," said Lea Hickman, senior director, Creative and Interactive Solutions at Adobe. "The HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5 gives designers and developers the power to deliver high-quality graphic content for the web that can look great, no matter what the screen."
The HTML5 Pack extension is available for both Mac OS X and Windows. It’s free and available here.
It’s worth noting that Google recently started indexing SVG files.
