When you install the Adobe ColdFusion 10 Extensions for Dreamweaver, the html tag library no longer includes html5 tags.  The work around for Windows is a follows:

When you install Dreamweaver, all of the core files are stored in the Programs folder (i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS6).  The tag libraries are in the TagLibraries folder inside the configuration folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS6\configuration\TagLibraries).  The first time you open Dreamweaver a user configuration folder is created and any new configuration changes (e.g  workspaces*, extensions, etc.) are placed there.  When you install the CF10 Tags you end up with this folder path (C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS6\en_US\Configuration\TagLibraries).  You may need to show hidden folders and files to see this.

Now that you know where these two locations are you can easily fix the problem.

Close Dreamweaver
Using a text editor open the TagLibraries.vtm in the Program Files location.
Copy all the html tags at the top of the file (recommend that you start at the top and go all the way to the first closing </taglibrary> tag).
Open the TagLibraries.vtm file in the user fold and paste over the same tags (you can create a backup copy or if you make a mistake just reinstall the CF10 MXP file).
Save the file and open Dreamweaver
At this point you should be able to test both by creating a new CFM file and start typing <canvas> and <cfmediaplayer> to make sure the tag lookup works.
