The DOCTYPE for the HTML5 HTML version is <!DOCTYPE HTML>. This form 
will trigger verification and parsing as HTML4.1 since that is the 
current definition. This DOCTYPE tag should be changed to <!DOCTYPE 
HTML5> to show it as HTML5 and not trigger syntax and parsing errors 
since HTML5 is NOT valid HTML4.1 and will cause the W3C validator to 
throw out errors due to invalid HTML4.1 parms.
