There is a pleasant surprise for most of us in an article here from ZDNet UK reports that Internet Explorer 9 will support HTML 5. In particular, it will support the <video> tag with decoding for MP3 and AAC for audio and H.264 and MPEG-4 for video.

To try the platform preview and see some cool HTML 5 example pages go to Microsoft's IE test site here.

For Adobe this may be a surprise but it is not pleasant.
