Is there a plugin or another way to make wordpress generate HTML5?

My wordpress theme is coded in HTML5, however when i look at the source code it seems that wordpress is still outputting xHTML… is there a plugin or anything that will convert this into HTML5 so that all the markup is consistent or is this just something that happens with wordpress?

XHTML 1.0 is just a subset of XHTML5 so the only thing you’d need to change so that everything will be consistent would be the doctype.
