I am about to release BlueGriffon 1.6 so this is clearly too late for
this version.
So, if for 1.7, I add a "Polyglot" checkbox to the New Document dialog
in the case of html5 (xml serialization), will you consider BlueGriffon
as an implementation? That checkbox would strip the xml declaration from
the document serialization on save or PUT.
