Can someone tell me whether the internal browser is fully html 5.0 compliant?, or comment on my next statement...

Thanks Xandrex. Your link wasn't quite right, but I did find I think what you were trying to point to is here:
Now, one thing to be aware of (for those following this) is that your wireless access goes through a server and it knows what kind of information that is going across the http protocol. It translates a lot of this into before sending it into the airwaves to make it more efficient (a good thing). Here are some translations that occur in real time....
Many graphic file formats are converted into .png file formats. tiff is supported (not in normal browsers without a plug-in)
JAR files are converted into .cod.
Large images are scaled to fit the screen or a proportion thereof.
html and xhtml are converted to a format similar to WBXML
WML -> WMLC
SVG -> PME (a proprietary binary format that the blackberry handles well).
WTAI call links supported.
There are meta tags that can be useful too.
Much of this stuff is for MDS development.
No info on the <canvas> class and why it seems to be working.
Some other great links are here:
I need to do more research on canvas tags....still unsure if it's accepted. I did discover shapes tags tied to

I finally found the answer....we really don't support the <canvas> tag, though if we supported this, the power we would have in our browser would be so much more. I really can't believe that we don't support it.
Check out this site and click on any example. This shows what could be possible with a tiny little bit of browser capability added to our browser....one tag only in fact....
This closes this. I have to recommend this to the blackberry "bosses" as a feature that we need to compete.
