HTML5 Markup in Templates

I noticed that when trying to use newer HTML5 markup for templates, things get switched around, changed, and moved. Is this a known problem with v6.4.6?

I've attached a comparison of the beginning of my template with the rendered page. The CSS is moved into the body and the doctype is removed.

    So I was playing around a bit and found if you put the doctype in all caps, DOCTYPE, the regions won't be moved around. That being said; however, the DOCTYPE is still removed from the beginning of the template, see screenshot.

    This is how I use the HTML5 doctype. Seems to work just fine. START-CODE should work as well.

    <!DOCTYPE html>

    Ah, that makes sense. I was thinking the template required a doctype to be specified, but after submitting again I noticed it's not even needed as long as you specify the root html tag.

    Thanks for posting that workaround. We are planning on providing native support for HTML5 in a future release.
