Not too long ago an issue was brought to django-developers this thread about using HTML4 or XHTML on the output generated inside Django.

It was said to:

  • Leave this until 1.0 gets out
  • Fill a ticket to not forget this and keep track.
  • Find an elegant way to handle this.

So here it is. My first recomendation: have a setting for choosing either HTML4, XHTML, HTML5... etc.

See As is pointed out there, having a setting to switch between HTML and XHTML would be very irritating - and besides, moving forward we'll probably want to stick to HTML5. Can we close this as wontfix?

Yes, I also think it's a WONTFIX now that all Django templates use HTML5.

aaugustin is correct.
