Let’s stick that in there too!
Ok, I will admit that this topic just popped into my head, mainly because of what I was doing at work, and then thinking of the HTML5 Boilerplate. I’m using that as a starting point to illustrate what I am talking about, not bashing it. I think the template is awesome and I am using it in my personal projects.
Let’s say we are using it to start a new site. It has a lot of awesome things in it to compensate for a ton of stuff. It has jQuery, a ready to go script page for your js, a nicely organized style sheet, dd-belatedpng.js for png support in IE6, Google Analytics code, Modernizer 1.5 js for HTML5 tag support in browsers that don’t actually support HTML5…and a few other things I can’t remember at the moment. For argument’s sake though, let’s just pretend that is it.
