Do content pages support HTML5?
Apparently so! I just had a successful trial with a sample of HTML5 scripting from the web, by clicking the 'HTML Editor' in 'Edit' mode of a Canvas wiki/content page, pasting it in and editing it. It seems to work perfectly.
Thanks for the feedback Earl!
Jesse Keeler, yes, HTML5 is supported as the primary markup language within Canvas. However, not all elements/attributes are allowed. Here's a useful document from Instructure that lists the allowed elements and the attributes permitted on them: https://s3.amazonaws.com/tr-learncanvas/docs/Canvas_HTML_Whitelist.pdf
Please be aware, that there may be some elements permitted that are not on this list, but that could simply be a lapse in the programming for parsing the editor content. If you stick to the elements and attributes as they are listed, though, you should never have a problem.
