<h2 id="about">About</h2>
<p>Oulipo is a three column, black and white WordPress theme with a clean, grid-based layout and lovely typography.</p>
</p>
<p>In addition to a clean design, Oulipo also features:
<ol>
<li>A widget-enabled sidebar</li>
<li>Front page styling for sticky posts</li>
<li>Threaded comments for WordPress 2.7+</li>
</ol>
</p>

<h2 id="installation">Installation</h2>
<p>Oulipo is installed in the same way as all other WordPress themes. Simply place the extracted theme in your themes directory (usually <code>/wp-content/themes</code>). Log-in to the WordPress administration panel, go to the "Design" section, and activate Oulipo. If my explanation confused you, or you haven't installed a theme before, more detailed directions can be found in the WordPress Codex <a href="http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes#Adding_New_Themes">here</a>.</p>

<h2 id="formatting">Special Formatting</h2>
<p>In addition to supporting standard formatting options such as blockquotes and captions, Oulipo supports a {fin} tag that can be used to demarcate the end of a post. To use the {fin} tag, simple insert the following code at the end of your post:
<p> <code>&lt;p class="fin"&gt;&lt;span class="bracket"&gt;{&lt;/span&gt; fin &lt;span class="bracket"&gt;}&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</code></p>
<li>
<h2 id="plugins">Suggested Plugins</h2>
<p>Oulipo was originally designed as a personal theme and used a number of plug-ins to enhance the functionality and design. Here is a list of plugins that were used with the original design that you might want to use on your site: </p>
