Adobe debuts HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5

Adobe Systems introduced an HTML5 Pack for its Illustrator CS5 vector graphics software, promising developers tools to make it easy to design, deliver and optimize content for mobile devices and the web. According to Adobe, the HTML5 Pack (available for free download here) enables users to leverage the latest HTML5 advancements via enhanced integration between Illustrator CS5 and Adobe Dreamweaver CS5 software--graphics generated by Illustrator will now display directly in compatible browsers, and Illustrator may also be used to create CSS code for styling of HTML content.

Also featured: Multi-screen authoring tools that take advantage of HTML5, CSS3, SVG and Canvas. Adobe adds that the HTML5 Pack's SVG and Canvas enhancements simplify the creation of interactive web content, also enabling users to build Illustrator-based web widgets generated by dynamic vector art for data-driven web workflows, as well as map artwork appearance attributes from designer to developer tools by exporting from the Illustrator Appearance Panel to CSS3.
