For all documents except HTML 5.0 the SoTD should read:

[[
This specification has been superseded by more recent specifications; it 
describes an older version of HTML and is thus an [Obsolete 
Recommendation](https://www.w3.org/2016/11/obsoleting-rescinding/) not 
recommended for new implementation but available as a reference for old 
-- and possibly still deployed -- implementations.  New implementations 
should follow the [latest version](https://www.w3.org/TR/html/) of the 
HTML specification.
]]

For the HTML 5.0 specification the SoTD should read:

[[
This specification has been superseded by [HTML 
5.1](https://www.w3.org/TR/html51/); a more recent specification of 
HTML5.  This specification of HTML 5.0 is thus an [Obsolete 
Recommendation](https://www.w3.org/2016/11/obsoleting-rescinding/) 
available as a reference for old -- and possibly still deployed -- 
implementations.  New implementations should follow the [latest 
version](https://www.w3.org/TR/html/) of the HTML specification.
]]


As part of ensuring that the community is aware of this proposal, W3C 
invites public comments through 23:59, Boston time on 2017-09-07, as 
follows:
  file a GitHub issue <https://github.com/w3c/WebPlatformWG/issues>,
  or send them to public-webapps@w3.org

If you work for a W3C Member 
<https://www.w3.org/Consortium/Member/List>, please coordinate your 
comments with your Advisory Committee Representative. For example, you 
may wish to make public comments and have your Advisory Committee 
Representative refer to it from his or her formal review comments.


This Call for review follows section 6.9 "Obsoleting or Rescinding a W3C 
Recommendation":
