    Actually, I started using the html5 doctype when I found out that almost *anything* that's valid html4.01 (strict) is also valid in html5. It does cut out a little of the verbose-ness - codes much cleaner.

    That's true. But the issue is that since HTML5 won't tell you things not yet supported are "wrong", it won't really be a very valid page until all the major browsers catch up. What you're doing is more verifying/writing as HTML4, then calling it HTML5 (which is completely valid, but not really different). But at least then the transition should be smoother, though I'm guessing still very slow.

    yeah. realistically, I'm still using html4.01 strict, because I won't be adding any "true" html5 stuff until it's widely supported. it'll come, albeit slowly. But, as bluewalrus says, I can leave out stuff like type="text/javascript" without causing a fuss. And the doctype is sooooooo much easier to remember
