Just learning so stick with me...
My quesstion is: If I am making a new site in Dreamweaver and plan on using some of the new HTML5 features like for example the easier way to apply CSS to rounded corners, or drop shadows; should my Doc Type be HTML5 when I first make the site? I'm using Dreamweaver CS5.5.
As far as I have noticed, html5 does not have a DOCTYPE declaration. so your opening tag would simply be "<html>".
But I would check with w3schools about that to be sure.
But when I begin my site in Dream Weaver do I need to choose html5 from the dropdown menu next to DocType in the New Document window that pops up right after you choose File then New (when very first starting the site in DreamWeaver)....if I plan on using any of the new html5 features? Thank you!
Well, I was a bit mistaken. there is actually a doctype declaration:
and if you follow the steps you mentioned using the drop-down menu in CS5 (I can't troubleshoot CS5.5 yet) then you will choose HTML5 which will match what you see in the above link I provided.
