The xmlns attribute is deprecated and no longer necessary in HTML 5.

The XML namespace declaration is required if the blog is served as application/xhtml+xml. http://www.w3.org/TR/html-polyglot/ provides guidelines for making webpage compatible with both HTML (text/html) and XHTML (application/xhtml+xml).
