Package: emacs24-common
Version: 24.1+1-4

        The XHTML RELAX NG schema currently packaged with Emacs 24.1 in
        Debian doesn't support XHTML5.  For instance, nXML doesn't seem
        to recognize ‘aside’ as a valid element in the example XHTML5
        document MIME'd.

        I was able to find the schema with XHTML5 support at [1, 2],
        and, in order to force nXML use it instead of the one shipped,
        created a schemas.xml file (in the directory that holds the
        example document) based on the contents of Emacs' own
        etc/schema/schemas.xml, with only the following edit:

   <typeId id="XSLT" uri="xslt.rnc"/>
   <typeId id="RELAX NG" uri="relaxng.rnc"/>
-  <typeId id="XHTML" uri="xhtml.rnc"/>
+  <!-- formely: xhtml.rnc -->
+  <typeId id="XHTML" uri="validator-syntax-ed90a83ab0fd/relaxng/xhtml5.rnc"/>
   <typeId id="DocBook" uri="docbook.rnc"/>
   <typeId id="RDF" uri="rdfxml.rnc"/>

        (I've unpacked the schema snapshot [2] into the same directory
        as well.)

        Unfortunately, this schema uses the following datatype library
        declaration [3], which Emacs doesn't seem to support:

datatypes w = "";

        Thus, I've also had to provide the following “stub” code:

(defun rng-html5-compile (name params)
  "A stub for the datatype library."
  '(t identity))

(put (intern "";)

        Finally, it made Emacs recognize the ‘aside’ element introduced
        in XHTML5.

        Hopefully, someone could implement proper support for [3].
        Either way, my suggestion would be to switch to the RELAX NG
        XHTML schema that supports XHTML5 [1].
