Basic HTML5 Template

The Basic HTML5 Template is perfect for testing code snippets. Its purpose is to save you time from having to code a new template every time you want to start working on a new script or test some other code sample. It is just the very basics, and it only supports modern browsers.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <meta charset="utf-8">

  <!-- Basic HTML5 template for quick sample and testing pages.
    No compatibility for older browsers.
