The ever-wonderful, Smashing Magazine features a good introduction by Tim Wright, called "HTML5 and The Future of the Web". The links and references following the article are particularly helpful.

Even more 'hands-on' is an interesting tutorial called, "HTML 5 and CSS 3: The Techniques You’ll Soon Be Using" from the site, Nettuts+. The goal is to redesign a blog page using, as the title would suggest, HTML5 and CSS3 tagging. This approach is a wonderful way for those familiar with the current state of tagging (say, you and me) to begin grappling with the new system.
