HTML5 Features You Should use Right Now

The folks at NetTuts created a video on HTML5 features you can use right now.  I would like to focus on 4 of them.

HTML DocType
Instead of including a long link to a DTD in each of your HTML documents, you can simple replace it with:
<!DOCTYPE html>

Character Set
You can define a character set much more simply.
<meta charset="utf-8"/>

No More Type Attributes
You are no longer required to add type attributes to the <style> or <script> tags. For example:
<script>
  // your code here
</script>

or

<style>
  p{ margin:0; }
</style>

I plan to test this a bit myself, but according to the author, Google is already using the DocType setting.
