Apples decision to not support Flash on the iPhone, iPod, and iPad has been at the very least an unpopular one. In April Steve Jobs wrote an open letter to Flash detailing all the reasons why he, and consequently Apple, feel that supporting the format is unnecessary. Today, Apple took that explanation a step further by launching a pageĀ  on their website dedicated to a format they do support: HTML5.

The page offers demos of HTML 5 (all of which require the latest version of Safari) which show how it can be used for web video, to create transitions, showcase photos and more. The page also offers links for developers who may want to recreate what Apple has done on websites of their own.

What do you think about HTML5? Could it become the standard that Flash is?
