Recently I can see a lot of HTML5 templates coming to the marketplace. Ofcourse these templates have really cool features. But I’m just worried about what will happen to the XHTML templates. will the reviewers now reduce accepting xhtml templates? will the sales of XHTML templates will be down too? is it a good idea to start making templates with html5 rather than xhtml?

For the most people the design counts. Sure you can do cool stuff wit html5 and canvas objects but it’s very difficult to make all effects backward compatible.

I think it’s acceptable if the cool stuff works on newer browsers (e.g. the latest versions of FireFox, Opera, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer), and make sure it degrades gracefully on crappy browsers. There is the excanvas library for older versions of IE, and workarounds for pretty much everything else.
Dude concentrate on getting your designs kickass first, that’s more important at the moment.
Even HTML5 coded websites can suck.
