Composer defaults with an HTML 4.1 heading on anything you (I) put in there. I can't for the life of me find anywhere this can be changed, I would like to move on to HTML5. Is there something I'm missing or does something need to be changed with composer?? Thanks

A lot needs changed with Composer, but there is no developer to work on it.

I use Geany : Home Page and created my own HTML5 template.

Code: Select all
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">


<meta charset="utf-8" />
<title>HTML5 Template</title>

    <h1>HTML5 Template</h1>


I design, save and press F5 which opens the page in the browser to see how it looks, which means learning HTML5, CSS and maybe JavaScript.

To my understanding, the last major work on Composer was done before HTML5 was a thing. Hence you can't tell it to make HTML5 pages.
