HTML 5 Doctype Support RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just downloaded Visual Web Developer Express 2010 and the doctype choices don't include the HTML 5 Doctype (<!DOCTYPE HTML>). The new HTML 5 tags (i.e. <header>, <nav>, <section>, <footer>, etc.) aren't recognized by the program and are shown as errors. Is this an oversight or will support for the HTML 5 Doctype be added in a future update?

    You can ask this in an ASP.NET forum (as suggested).

    Or I can move it into a specific MSDN forum if you'd like.

    This is regarding the HTML 5 tags:

    <header>, <nav>, <section>, <footer>
    

     

    Thanks!
