wp_list_comments not fully HTML5-friendly
|Reported by:||adamrice||Owned by:|
Currently, wp_list_comments supports ol, ul, and div as "styles" of nesting for threaded comments. While HTML5 is new enough that good markup practices are not entirely settled, the closest thing I've seen to a consensus is nested article elements.
This is currently not possible (except perhaps through a callback). Making it work right would also require inserting the comment classes as part of wp_list_comments' operation, which might require another parameter to turn it on.
I'm sure there are other WP functions that could use expanding to accommodate good HTML5 markup, but this is what jumped out at me.
