1 This is simply my standard blank HTML5 Wordpress theme. I use it as a jumping-off point for my
2 projects. It is based heavily on the "Blank" theme by Chris Coyier (it can be found at digwp.com).
3 The original theme is HTML4, so I HTML5'd it up and am adding a couple of stuff such as:
4 - four widget areas in convenient places for me: Header, Nav (for WP3 menu), Sidebar, Footer

5 - WP3 menus (create your menus and add as widgets within WP)

7 - my very specific, and probably wrong, HTML5 document structure. If you think it is wrong, (for
8 example, I don't think that I'm using <aside> correctly), let me know. A good thing, though - I am
9 not using a wrapper div. The .body class works just fine for that in most cases.

30 I use a modified Toucan CSS Reset combined with some ideas from the CSS LESS framework (media
31 queries for different screen sizes). I also place my CSS files in a <theme>/css folder and that
32 location is used in the header.php file of the theme. The normal style.css is used only for theme
33 information.
