Groupon builds mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, Android (phone and tablet), Windows Phone and various other platforms. To better support a wide range of devices, some have suggested that we include more HTML5 implementations in our mobile apps.

1. Would you recommend more HTML5 implementations? Why or why not?

2. Where would HTML5 work well? Where would this not work well?

Lastly, provide a code sample showing a specific situation (from your answer to question #2) where HTML5 would work especially well in a mobile app.
