Just 2 weeks ago at Web2.0 Expo, Kevin Lynch promised that Adobe would create the best tools in the world to author HTML5 and CSS3.

We have been spending a lot of time internally thinking about how our tools can best support and take advantage of some of the new functionality in HTML 5, and we wanted to share a couple of early ideas with you.
I’ve always thought that once HTML5 got a bit more concrete, you’d see design tools from Adobe that took advantage of it. The benefit of Flash is that we control the runtime and can tie features to the development cycle of our tools. Not the case with HTML5 and CSS3. But now that the standards have started to coalesce and have support in more browsers, we can make those features part of our design tools. Hopefully we’ll see a lot more of the examples above and I’d encourage you to keep an eye on the blog for info about design tools at Adobe and the web.
