Should Default to HTML5 #127

When I run jekyll serve, I get:
| Maruku tells you:
| Maruku cannot parse this block of HTML/XML:
| |
| Missing end tag for 'input' (got "html")
| Line: 4
| Position: 226
| Last 80 unconsumed characters:

input doesn't need an end tag in HTML5.

Perhaps this is an issue with Jekyll, but whether it's Jekyll and/or Maruku that's lagging behind, HTML5 should be the default by now.

I'll see if there's some setting I can configure to validate HTML with HTML5 rules.


I see that a comment on Jekyll issue #1261 says to use Redcarpet instead of Maruku. I'll try that.


Resolving in favor of #56.
