HTML5 Bones is a template that goes back to basics and provides you with the bare minimum required to get going with HTML5.
Inline comments explain how and when to use some of the most common HTML5 elements.
Can also be used as a guide when building your own pages from scratch.
It does include Normalize.css and original html5shiv as the former aids cross browser similarity and the latter is the minimum requirement for HTML5 documents to render in older versions (8 and below) of Internet Explorer.
Some of the WAI-ARIA roles are also included.
Templates that explain how to use HTML5 audio and video are also available.
