Yes, I don't think I've officially announced a version of TagSoup that
has had HTML 5 parsing, but it now does as standard for the last few
releases. The HTML 5 spec is still changing, so it's entirely possible
something is incorrect in a corner case, but please let me know and
I'll fix it.

Thanks, Neil
