You all probably know that new HTML 5 standard is coming. We made a new intellisense schema that you can add to VS 2008 or VWD Express 2008 and get intellisense and validation on HTML 5 elements. Note that schema is for markup only, we do not have DOM2 update for jscript intellisense yet.
How to install the schema:
On 32-bit OS path is C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\Packages\schemas\html. VWD shares folder with Visual Studio.
Schema is experimental and has certain limitations. For example, VS 2008 and VWD are not able to validate 'wildcard' attribute names, like HTML 5 data-* attributes and is not able to handle 'transparent' content model when element content is defined by the element parent (see, for example, A element). However, it may help you to start playing with the new standard.

The schema does not work in VS 2010 Beta 2 unfortunately. It does work in later builds and will work in VS 2010 RTM.
That is phenomenal! Thank you all so much :-) Works a charm.
for sharing Useful inof.
Yes, this can work with VS2010 beta 2. Add the XSD file to the corresponding folder of 2010 (10 instead of 9).
Then edit the .reg file in a text editor and change the path from 9.0 to 10.0.
I did this and it works perfectly for me in VS2010 beta 2.
