Hi,
   This is a summary of recent changes to the HTML 5 Reference [1].

Formerly known as The Web Develoer's Guide to HTML 5, I renamed it to 
the much shorter and more convenient title "HTML 5 Reference" with the 
subtitle "A Web Developer’s Guide to HTML 5".

The draft has now been divided into 3 major sections, each of which are 
now clearly described in the introduction.  I'm hoping the intro will 
clear up any misconceptions about how I intend to write the draft.

I've begun writing the Getting Started with HTML 5 section, which is 
being targetted at beginners who may have never written HTML before. 
Though it's the content is very preliminary; expect it to be filled out 
a lot over the coming weeks.

I've also added element summaries for each element from the spec.  The 
summaries themselves are currently generated entirely from the spec 
itself, though I intend to add additional info to them later which isn't 
as easy to scrape directly from the spec.

The syntax section is currently missing.  I expect to significantly 
revise what I had in previous drafts and incorporate it again later.
