HTML5, it's a coming (again)!

It's been a long time coming (for the nth time..), but we're scheduling a
deployment of HTML5 across the Wikimedia cluster [1]. This is set for Monday
17th September at 18:00-20:00 UTC [2].



The intention is to set $wgHtml5 [3] to true everywhere. It's been running
on MediaWiki.org and our 2 test wikis for quite a while, and other sites
like translatewiki.net with no issues.



The intention is to leave it enabled unless it causes major problems. If
you're running an application that screen scrapes, shame on you; you've had
enough notice to get it fixed! ;)



Now is the time to fix up your scripts and programs (where necessary), tell
your friends!

I followed the links and wasn't aware of the recommendation to avoid
using named entities besides the XML pre-defined ones. I added this
to <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/HTML5#Validity_issues> , if it's
covered elsewhere please edit away and/or replace with a link.
