Do you use HTML5 on your clients websites?

I looked at your website and it was XHTML STRICT in which case you can 
use rev=made without any problems, I also have also been informed (from 
various sources), that @rev may make a comeback in HTML5 eventually, so 
really I don't see any harm in using rev=made (for at least the next 
four years anyway),  lastly the reason  why @rev was dropped by the HTML 
WG was because people were not (on the whole) using it correctly, so I 
am taking the opportunity t  inform people HOW to use it Correctly as 
the concept is not too difficult is it?
