Thank you for the changes you made to the validator.nu backend at
http://qa-dev.w3.org:8888/ 

I think everything is working correctly with the validator now.

I got all the pages to compile OK except for
https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/basics.html
and
https://eyeasme.com/Joe/MathML/HTML5/extras.html

All the other pages required changes in them to compile cleanly.

The two pages that do not validate use the "semanatic" tag in a 
non-validating manner.  The validator correctly points out the 
incorrect use of the tag and a careful reading of the MathML specs 
confirms the validators results.

I know of no errors in the validator at http://qa-dev.w3.org:8888/ 
with regard to HTML5 and MathML.

The production W3C validator should be updated with these changes.

Joe
