HTML5 version of The Game of Life  JUL 12 2010

But I post these experiments because I've been using HTML since 1994 and I love it. It's simple (or can be), open, can be edited with any old text editor, and increasingly capable. Oh sure, HTML can be maddening at times, but I'm fascinated and happy to see it maturing into something that has so much functionality.
