Hello,

Are you comfortable with HTML5 templates ? Should we begin to code more HTML5 WordPress templates over XHTML 4 .1 Strict ?

Buyers and author’s advice are welcome!

We’re still waiting for an official reply to this thread. :impatient:

I also want to use HTML5 ’s tags. I made an HTML5 website for a client a few months ago and then when I had to do one in XHTML – it felt so unsemantic and dull with the lack of hgroup, header, footer, article, seciton, multiple h1’s etc. :(

A quick search returned me 25 results, looks like some authors already work with HTML5 :)

Yeah, but, it will require a lot of time to create both versions. Not sure about this one, but still a good idea.

This means more work. More work means higher price. Higher price means lesser sales.

Buyers don’t really care about xhtml or html5 as long as it works.
