Visual Studio Web Standards Update for HTML5 & CSS3

Yesterday Microsoft released an update to Visual Studio 2010 to implement a much improved HTML5 & CSS3 support. You can download the Web Standards update from the Visual Studio Gallery and enjoy the new features immediately. I downloaded it last night and I am already feeling the improvements as I work this morning. I am not going to get into a detailed review, but rather point you to some of the ASP.NET team members blogs for more details. But the update lets you designate HTML5 & CSS3 as the validation rules for files, removing newer tags from appearing as errors or warnings. It also adds some intellisense support for newer tags and properties.
