Adobe Systems Incorporated today announced the immediate availability of the Adobe HTML5 Pack for Adobe Illustrator CS5, which is employed for design work for mobile devices and web content. 
This HTML5 pack provides initial support for HTML5 as well as CSS3 and extends the scalable vector graphics (SVG) capability in Illustrator, enabling easier design and optimisation of content for mobile devices and the web.
SVG generated by Illustrator can be displayed directly in compatible browsers and Illustrator can be used to generate CSS code for styling of HTML content.
“Producing graphical web content that can be viewed across mobile devices has been tricky, with devices varying greatly when it comes to screen size and performance,” said Lea Hickman, senior director, Creative and Interactive Solutions at Adobe.
“The HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5 gives designers and developers the power to deliver high-quality graphic content for the web that can look great, no matter what the screen.”
“Our clients ask us to develop content to engage customers across a range of media – from online to mobile devices – and we are continually exploring new ways to meet their needs both technically and creatively,” said James De Jesus, director of creative development at AKQA.
“The HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5 will let us extend our use of Illustrator CS5 to develop scalable creative content that looks amazing and integrates well with the latest Web standards.”
The HTML5 Pack for Illustrator CS5 is immediately available on Adobe Labs as a free download.
