I've been playing with this for a little while and I make a new page, I can use a blank page with the HTML 5 doctype or I can use one of the html5 layouts for my page. I notice however that when one of the html5 pages is selected, the doctype isn't automatically html5. The xhtml1.0 doctype came up and it's completely possible to create a page in the html5 layout with an xhtml or html4 doctype . .which of course, is wrong. Shouldn't the sample pages force the html5 doctype so the user isn't responsible for making sure the doctype is valid on these pages? I can see this with a blank page that I make, but shouldn't the layout be already producing a valid html5 doctype on a new page?
Just a thought ..
It is a good thought
Yes, we should have set the doctype to HTML5 as soon as the new templates are used for page creation. Right now, you need to do it manually.
We know if this issue and noted it in the release notes.
Until we can fix it, you have to choose HTML5 as the doctype in the New Document Dialog or it will add whatever is selected. The starter layouts have the correct doctype, but the NDD setting overwrites it.
Thanks to both of you. I just wanted to make sure the problem was noted so people wouldn't be caught by this.
