#27822 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Editor doesn't use HTML 5 elements for Galleries and Captions when enabled

If a theme uses HTML 5 Galleries or captions, the editor continues to output the HTML 4 elements rather than use HTML 5 elements. Aside from the inconsistency, this could create backwards-compatibility issues in the future if theme devs start styling the editor based on the HTML 4 elements (although most theme devs should use classes to style galleries and captions).

Ideally, in 3.9, the editor should output the same elements for galleries and captions both in the editor and front-end.
