Sympal Theme | drupal.org

Sympal Theme could serve as the basis of a CSS theme for grassbase

A base theme. A framework for CSS themes. A theme developers theme.

If you have been following some of the recent CSS and webdesign trends, you might have noticed the trend slowly bending towards semantic correct designs. As it should have been from the start.
This means that you don’t just design a site, but really build it. Starting with a good blueprint, which results in a good foundation.

Such a foundation must be semantically best. This way we fulfil four mayor requirements, for free:

* fully SEO supporting
* accessible on mobile devices
* highlight the content, content comes first
* use very consistent XHTML, CLASSnames and IDnames

In fact we want to use three buzzwords:

* Source order
* Tableless
* What’s in a name

    Especially interesting would be if you manage to keep the XHTML the same. That way the stylesheets are 1:1 exchangable between Drupal sites using this basetheme and WordPress sites using it.

    Thanks – good to have somebody listening to me 🙂
    Sorry my post was very short – mainly a note to self. Thanks for the tips – good to be able to port between wordpress & drupal (as you can probably see I couldn’t resist the Garland theme on wordpress although I do feel that Drupal deserves the credit for it).
