If they concern "HTML5" markup, then sure. Note though that sometimes
"HTML5" is used as an umbrella term for all sorts of browser features
introduced in the last couple of years, not all of them are on-topic

The question is understandable because the HTML5 Specification, by contrast  
to previous HTML specifications, is no longer limited to specifying the  
markup language; it also specifies the API with which documents in that  
markup language, and no other, can be used, and specifies “JavaScript” (by  
which they actually mean “all ECMAScript implementations with sufficient  
similarity to Mozilla JavaScript”) as the default scripting language with  
which this API can be used.

This raises the question whether the separation of Web development topics  
into an HTML newsgroup and a JavaScript newsgroup still is appropriate.

When all you know is jQuery, every problem looks $(olvable).
