I would like the maven-site-plugin to have the option to output HTML5 (or XHTML5 to be more specific), and from what I can see, maven-site-plugin cannot do this today. (correct?)
To support this, I am understanding that the following needs to get done:
- Create an XHTML5 sink for Doxia.
- Teach the maven-site-plugin to optionally use the XHTML5 sink if specified in the skin. (or make in mandatory for maven-site-plugin v4.x?)
- (Possibly?) Extend Doxia to support new (X)HTML5 tags.
My question is - am I on the right track? Is there some other work to support HTML5 that I may have missed?

Thank you for confirming I’m on the right track.
I got here as I was trying to develop a maven skin based on an HTML5 template, and I couldn’t find a clean way of getting HTML5 tags through the site plugin.
