[html5] Updating to XHTML 1 to HTML5

Unless I'm missing the point, I think the OP wanted to move from XHTML 1 to
HTML5 *with an XML serialisation*, not to HTML serialization.

If so, steps like replacing /> with > are incorrect guidance.

I've had to switch between HTML 4.01 and XHTML 1.0 a few times, and the
XHTML>HTML route is generally easier, a search and replace on:
will get you most of the way.

Brenden, was there anything you *needed* XHTML 1.1 for, or was did you use
that because it seemed the best choice at the time?

You mentioned MathML, so I guess if you've used that, a little more advice
(or a link) might help more than "more or less" ;)

Not something I've looked into, but these look like good starting points:

Kind regards,
