Does the SEO toolkit recognize HTML 5 semantic tags? RRS feed

    The title kind of says it all...

     A new site I am working on utilizes HTML 5 for the semantic tagging on the site, including the Article, Section, etc. tags. What is permitted within each article is its own H1 tag to identify the title of the article, and each section can also have an H1 tag. This is semantically good and, with some other search engines, recommended.

    With the SEO toolkit, though, I am receiving an SEO warning about multiple H1 tags on the site. This is now permitted, but am just wondering if the toolkit recognizes this (maybe through the specific doctype) or if this is an update that can be applied to the toolkit in future as a planned enhancement?

    Part of your question is about Seo Tool kit internals along with future plans for changes.

    Since HTML 5 is a new for the Adoption Specifications and use for Browsers and Web page design

    your best answers will be from the IIS Team project managers.

    I suggest you contact Ruslany via Emal  http://forums.iis.net/members/ruslany.aspx 

    or at his Blog via Email or Comment  http://blogs.iis.net/ruslany/ .

    For the Seo Tool Kit warnings about H1 tags you might use more  CSS and Style sheets

    for the Web Site AFAIK the use of XHTML Strict is part of validation of pages.
