HTML

The Skin Editor HTML screen lets you add code into HTML areas of the page.

DocType Tag

See the http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_doctype.asp for more information on HTML doctypes.

The default doctype for Confluence 5, used in the ThemeBuilder ROOT theme, is <!DOCTYPE html>. You can change this in a custom skin, but you should be aware that it will change how the browser interprets your pages.

HTML Tag

The HTML Tag option allows you to add attributes to the <HTML> tag for all pages viewed with the skin. The primary purpose of this option is to add a VML namespace when using things like Google Maps API.

{xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"}

Each Header, Body, and Footer section has a popup editor that enables access to write additional HTML into the Header, Body, and Footer sections of the current skin.

For example, a JavaScript file has been added to ThemeBuilder as a resource. To include that file in the HTML, you can add the script code to the HTML Header.

<script type="text/javascript" src="/plugins/servlet/theme/engine/resource/MYSKIN/browserdetect-min.js"> </script>

Result

The JavaScript file is included on the page, as seen in the source code.
