The “version” attribute on the “html” element is obsolete. You can safely omit it.

In HTML5, there’s no need to specify the version attribute - it is now obsolete. Here’s an example minimal HTML document to start with:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <title>Test</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <p></p>
  </body>
</html>
