No HTML5 support- Music and video hub: The 7 sins of Windows Phone 7

As Microsoft launched Internet Explorer 9 beta with HTML 5.0, Windows Phone 7 doesn’t yet support HTML 5, which is used for video playback, on IE Mobile.

Brad Becker, director of product management at Microsoft, said in a blog post, "There's been a lot of discussion lately around web standards and HTML 5 in particular. People have been asking us how Silverlight [the application development platform] fits into a future world where the tag is available to developers."

Becker says Microsoft remains committed to using Silverlight to extend the web by enabling scenarios that HTML fails to cover.
