Hi, I have noticed the WebMatrix 2.0 samples are using all sorts of custom tags.
I have tested using IE9 older modes, and the pages seem to render just fine. Meaning this is fine way before HTML5? Why isn't this used in older examples? And I rarely see people used that in practice until now. Should I start using this way as well?
I haven't tested it on older browsers, only the IE9 older rendering modes. Is this actually ok in, like IE6, and IE8?
I am thinking of switching to this style, but, just want to make sure it is ok.

They aren't custom tags (other than blah) - they are html5 tags. Modernizr helps detect features available in a browser and there are certain js libraries to render html5 tags in browsers not supporting html5. Without these libraries, the html5 tags won't
work in older browsers.

These are new tags introduced in HTML5. they would work fine in IE9 and later. but won't render good in IE older versions. For that you need to use the modernizer library. it will detect browsers that doesn't support HTML5 standard and render accordingly.
