-CSS Animations are still in a flux. The Working Group has [decided to provide](http://www.w3.org/2012/01/13-svg-minutes.html#action02) a universal animation spec that would work across CSS, SVG and HTML. For now, use animations for providing additional glamour and use feature detection to provide alternative experience on browsers that do not support this feature for critical animations.

The notes below only apply to oldIE:
The [html5shiv](http://code.google.com/p/html5shiv/) enables you to use these in your markup (and Modernizr does the exact same by default).
If you introduce some of these elements later on (via AJAX or templating), html5shiv will also handle this for you (as of v3). [jQuery 1.7](http://blog.jquery.com/2011/11/03/jquery-1-7-released/) also has this functionality baked in.
-Lastly, if you need these elements to print correctly, use [html5shiv-printshiv.js](https://github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv/blob/master/src/html5shiv-printshiv.js) which addresses an IE bug there.
