Starting today, all Jimdo websites are compatible with HTML5, which is the latest standard for structuring the content on websites. We announced a few weeks ago that we would remove some old code from Jimdo, ultimately paving the way for today’s announcement that all HTML5 elements can now be used with any Jimdo website.
Jimdo is still totally accessible to people with absolutely no knowledge of coding. If you’ve never heard of HTML before, the important thing to know is that HTML5 makes the technology behind your website better, faster, and more robust.
Powerful new widgets
Adding interactive widgets to your Jimdo site is as easy as copying code into a Widget / HTML element. With HTML5, you can now use the latest versions of popular widgets to add awesome functionality to your Jimdo website.

Moving forward, our compatibility with HTML5 means that a whole host of new possibilities are open to us, and we can’t wait to explore them so that we can make Jimdo better for you.
