    Question Expression Web 4 and HTML5

    Hi all,

    so I got a free copy of Expression Web through Dream Spark and I quite like it so far. However, I'm trying to write some HTML5, using EW's HTML5 Doctype setting and I keep getting messages like:

    "In HTML5 the tag <header> is not permitted"

    This goes for all HTML5 elements - nav, header, hgroup, article, section...

    Does this mean that Expression Web doesn't support HTML5 elements, even though you can set your document's doctype to HTML5?

    I'm trying to get an answer here too: http://social.expression.microsoft.c...6-16f661b418cb

    I can't believe how angry people can get at the mere mention of HTML5! Worth a read if you fancy a laugh.

    Hello Aledcoe,

    Expression web 4 ONLY support the Doctype of HTML5 ... all the great tags like <header>, <section>, etc... is not supported!

    and as far as I know Microsoft released Expression Web 4 to support HTML5 but i don't see that also like you.!

    I've made a little snippet for expression web 4 to test HTML5 you can check it here:

    And please let me know if you need any help

    Microsoft fixed the problem with HTML5 now:
