My HTML5 base template (skeleton file) with jQuery from Google CDN

Below is the standard HTML5 template I start most of my projects with. It includes the latest 1.x version of jQuery, jQuery UI, and the desired jQuery UI theme. It also has a conditional comment that checks to see if the current browser older than IE9 and includes HTML5Shiv to make sure new elements are rendered properly in older IE browsers.

While I don’t claim this is the best skeleton HTML5 template, I think it is a very solid foundation to start from 😉

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="keywords" content="">
<meta name="description" content="">
<script src="//"></script>
<script src="//"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="//">
<!--[if lt IE 9]><script src="//"></script><![endif]-->
$(function() {
    //DOM is Ready
