Note that this is a known issue and that it is intended that when the spec 
becomes more stable, the markup be annotated so as to more easily allow 
efforts such as this:

   http://html5.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/author-view-of-html5/

...to be created and trivially maintained. (Indeed, it may be easy for the 
spec itself to just have two buttons at the top to select which mode 
should be shown.)
