Is it possible to use the html5 <!DOCTYPE html> doctype in the layout, but not to use any other html5 elements (such as <header>, <section>, <article>, <footer> , etc.), but to impose with the old structure ( <div id="header">, <div id="content">, <div id="footer"> , etc.). Are there any features with layout with such a doctype? Can there be any problems? What are the benefits?

    Sure you may. No problem. Simplicity and ease of memorization.

    Yes, of course, doctypes, if memory serves, are needed for validations and + that in IE the layout will be more or less similar to the others, it depends on the layout.

    • Under the layout, more precisely, styles, in any case, you need to adjust. - Heidel
    • Yes, of course, but with the use of Doktaypov, it will be a little easier) - Goldy
