For anyone using the Genesis Framework, you know the biggest change coming in version 2.0 is the switch from XHTML to HTML5.
If you’re using an older Genesis child theme, you can still upgrade to Genesis 2.0 without worry, your theme will not break.
In order for your theme to support the new HTML5 markup built into Genesis 2.0, you’ll have to make a few changes to the CSS (style.css file) and add a line of code to your functions.php file.
You will also need these visual markup comparison guides from StudioPress.
