Well, if you just started a career in UII developing, you should probably know what their responsibilities are by now.

Here is a little info on a UI developer: http://programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/58246/who-can-call-themselves-a-ui-developer

I know that i read somewhere where a ui developer should know basically any web language.

I found this to help you answer your original question about html5 and IE:


If the browser doesnt support HTML5 elements, then it doesnt support it. However, that doesnt mean that an older version of IE cannot load a web page with an HTML5 doctype.

<!DOCTYPE html>

that just means that if you expect to support earlier versions of IE, you shouldnt expect certain HTML5 elements to work as expected. Other elemnets like <input /> that are support across different version of IE, may not support the newer HTML5 input attributes. Say for instance the input type of "number" or "range". In IE, you get a standard text box, where in other browsers, you get the appropriate HTML5 component.

Try visiting this link with IE and Chrome so you can see the difference:

Internet explorer is typical browswer if its not supporting html 5 you are not supposed to use new tags.
