HTML5 - The HTML5 DOCTYPE

The HTML5 DOCTYPE under the most recent draft (as of May 30, 2010) is as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>

You should include this at the very start of your HTML5 document, with no spaces or blank lines before it.

Also, remember to include a <meta> with your charset in the <head> of your document.
