I'm trying to convert a website made with HTML5 ( en some CSS3 ) to a SilverStripe template. But it seems that the template engine doesn't support the HTML5 tags like; <header> <article> <section> <nav> < hgroup> <aside> <footer> ?

Does this mean that i have to use <div id="***"> and go back to the ' old' way of doing things?
Can i include something in my config to make this work?


So sorry, stupid typo ; folder temlate instead of template.

The template engine supports anything you want it to support. XML, JSON, HTML5... what issues where you having with those tags?

Tx for your reply, but as you can see i corrected my message...

I have absolute no issues, besides the fact that i should pay more attention to my folder structure ( and the names ) :)
