The validator correctly reports an error, since your document declares 
XHTML 1.0 Transitional doctype and must thus be checked against it.

To request for HTML5 validation (experimental), which basically means 
validating against some relatively recent version of HTML 5.1 Nightly 
(work in progress). Alternatively, click on “More Options” in the 
validator’s user interface and select ”HTML5 (experimental)” in the 
Document Type dropdown.
