What would you like to do?
My own HTML5 boilerplate sans most of the code. Because there's too much Romulus-be-damned boilerplate, and people fail to realize almost none of it is in any way needed.

<title>Yes, really.</title>
<p>This is everything you need.
<!DOCTYPE html><title>What is needed…</title><p>Is way, way less markup. This is perfectly semantic and valid as a standalone HTML document with clearly defined &lt;head&gt; and &lt;body&gt; parts. Really. HTML5Boilerplate is &gt;200% larger than it needs to be.
