HTML5 Initiative

HTML5 One of the 5 major initiatives for Drupal 8 is converting Drupal to HTML5! As part of this initiative we'll be revamping most of the templates and theme functions and implementing new form input types and elements. It's a big challenge, but also a great opportunity to make Drupal's markup and CSS the best it can be, and YOU can help.

This page collects content for those interested in being involved in the HTML5 Initiative for Drupal 8 and provides an overview of various activities surrounding the initiative. See the information block for more details about the roadmap and how to get involved.
