Based on the [HTML5 Boilerplate](http://html5boilerplate.com/) created by [Paul Irish](http://paulirish.com/) and [Divya Manian](http://nimbupani.com/
Standing on the foreheads of giants (namely Paul Irish and Divya Manian and the good folks that have helped them create and continue the growth of HTML5 Boilerplate, I present to you my first WordPress plug-in, HTML5 Boilerplate. As a spin-off of my Boilerplate - Starkers WP Theme, this plug-in can be added to any theme, new, pre-existing, already customized, whatevs!
The clumsiest part of this is dealing with the Boilerplate CSS and JS files.
To avoid any changes you make from being overwritten during upgrades,
"starter" files have been created in the
/js directories. I recommend
creating copies of the starter files (removing '-starter' from the new filenames)
that you can safely edit. That way, if the starter files are updated later, you can
simply copy/paste from them into your files again, and all is fine.
Another route would be to add additional links in your pages, but this does increase your HTTP Requests, which hurts performance... Your call, let me know if you can think of a better implementation.
More about this plug-in can be found at: http://aarontgrogg.com/html5boilerplate/
I also built a Boilerplate theme based on Elliot Jay Stocks' Starkers Theme that can be found at: http://aarontgrogg.com/boilerplate/
Please let me know if you have any questions/suggestions/thoughts,
