I have been thinking about materials to engage the author/developer
community, and I'm inclined to start on something
like "Video, Audio, and Media in HTML 5".

We have Ian's spec and Lachlan's guide and Mike's markup spec,
but those all take an exhaustive-enumeration approach. I started
outlining a successive elaboration guide to HTML 5, but I'm not
sure "here's how you make a <p> TAG" is going to get much attention
at this point, so I'm inclined to focus on something closer to
the leading edge, i.e. video/audio/media.

I'm particularly inspired by the integrated test results
in google doctype and the interactive examples in the
w3schools tutorial.

I discovered there's a wikibook on HTML 5 too; it doesn't
currently blow my hair back, but I think it's an
interesting idea.

Links to all that stuff are included in the attached

Let me know if you're interested to help with this sort of approach.
