Just so you know, there's no such thing as "the HTML5 doctype". The
"<!doctype html>" doctype isn't called the HTML5 doctype as it isn't used
exclusively for HTML5 documents, it's used for HTML5, XHTML5, and HTML6,
XHTML6 etc and all other types of HTML and XHTML from now on. It should
really be referred to as the "(X)HTML doctype" as it's just a general
purpose doctype. Anyway.
