Looking for HTML5 WYSIWIG editor/ software- does this exist?

Hi- I make websites w/ editors and only know a little code.  Client would like an HTML5 site because the flash I built (for other product) doesn't show on iPod and iPad.  Is there a good WYSIWIG editor/ program that I can use to make a site using HTML5?  We want videos etc. there that can be seen/ embedded on iPad & iPod.
Thanks.

HTML 5 is not yet ratified. As it's still in draft form (see http://www.w3.org/TR/html5/ for the current draft) you likely won't find software that is designed to create HTML 5 pages.

Further, as no browsers currently support HTML 5, there's little point in working with the new version at the moment.

I think your client may be confused. (Not uncommon for clients to ask for the moon and ask for the wrong moon at that.)

Apologies. It seems that some browsers are implementing bits and pieces of HTML 5 already, even though the work as a whole is still in draft form. Seems like a very bad idea to me, but that's the web for you.

As for HTML 5 editors, I'm not seeing anything promising. And this makes things sound very bad for WYSIWYG users

I'd steer clear of HTML 5 for now, until the dust has settled.

Video for Everybody is simply a chunk of HTML  code that embeds a video into a website using the HTML5 <video> element, falling back to QuickTime and Flash automatically, without the use of JavaScript or browser-sniffing. It therefore works in RSS readers (no JavaScript), on the iPhone / iPad (don’t support Flash) and on many, many browsers and platforms.
