Microsoft Begins Adding HTML5 and JavaScript Support to Visual Studio

Some developers have been asking when Microsoft will begin adding support for HTML5 into Visual Studio 2010. Microsoft has answered the query by announcing an update to VS2011 that includes better support for HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript.

However, there's no intellisense and there's lots of squiggly lines that make people uncomfortable. Combine all that with the fact that HTML5 is a moving target, and it's unclear. We've said before that the next version of Visual Studio will have better support HTML5, but what about today?"
