i mean, what are the new tags added on it?
or is there any new tags has been added?
MikeGale wrote:When I took the time yesterday to rough out the impact of this, it made me realise that article, footer etc. can be easily sidestepped. It's easy to avoid their use altogether and work cross browser. Instead of a "footer" tag, use a div with class = "footer" and you're home and dry. Such an approach is also easily converted to the specialised tag should you need. (A Regular Expression replace may be all you need. Come to think of it RegEx would also provide an easy way to undo the markup if you already have it.)

Practically it doesn't need to do all of HTML5. With a ruthless eye to costs it can just do the powerful extensions. That might be a big enough bite out of the problem.
