Syntax and Usage

Go to the Configuration Manager and select “HTML5 (plugin)“ for the main renderer.


After the plugin is installed, what is the proper syntax to render the html5? - Adam Molner 4/20/2015 12:42 p.m EST

There is no syntax, this is a render plugin, it should work automatically after you've selected “HTML5 (plugin)” for the renderer_xhtml config option. But there is a bug in the plugin. The getFormat() method needs to return xhtml (and not html5). After changing that it worked for me. — Anika Henke 2015-04-26 14:25

Misleading name and description

I find the name and description of this plugin very misleading. The only thing this plugin does is substituting the section <div>s with <section>s (and creating invalid HTML in the process due to mismatched number of elements) and changing all headings to <h1>s. That's about 0.01% of what HTML5 is about and not necessarily what you would want… — Anika Henke 2015-04-26 13:40

I now changed the original description (“HTML 5 Renderer”) to something more descriptive. — Anika Henke 2015-04-26 14:41
