When 6.8 was released HTML5 just wasn't something that many of
our clients were interested in at that time. And even now the
support for it across the web is still ramping up. Newer versions
of Cascade do a better job of preserving HTML5 tags.
I'm not quite sure I follow the part about the code in the
WYSIWYG, but in any case you should be able to tell Cascade to
ignore the parsing of those tags with Code
Sections until you're able to start using 6.10+
Thanks so much for the response. Is there a list of HTML5
improvements that 6.10 has over 6.8? I did look through the release
notes, but couldn't find anything. We're trying to make a go/no-go
decision with HTML5 vs. a fallback to XHTML.
I think the improvement is really just not stripping out the
tags anymore. Cascade should support any tag to the point that it
is XML compliant. The HTML Tidy should have been updated as well to
accept all of the new HTML5 tags as valid tags. If you're finding
that this isn't the case in 6.10 we'd love to get that
I wanted to follow up to and see if you are still experiencing
this HTML 5 behavior. If you are, a possible workaround would be to
uncheck (or disable) the Tidy feature when using HTML 5 with older
versions of Cascade.
Just to confirm, you are placing the header tag inside of the
WYSIWYG editor assigned to a region of the template, correct?
I tested this in Cascade 7 and noticed the HEADER tag is left
alone; however, a blank TITLE tag is placed directly above it. This
was a known
defect in Cascade 6.8/6.10 that was fixed in 7.0.1. If you
uncheck Tidy, everything is fine (as expected). On a side note, if
you place the HEADER tag within the template itself, as Charlie
suggested, this works just fine and the HEADER tag is left
Just to confirm, I also tested this same scenario in Cascade
7.0.1 and it appears that the HEADER tag is left alone completely
and there is no empty TITLE tag above it, even with Tidy
Yes - am placing the header tag inside the WYSIWYG.
The title tag shows up in the wysiwyg AND the resulting code repeats the <html> , <head> etc. inside the <body> tag (see my description above). Is that fixed in 7.0.1 as well?
