  • 11. Homework - HTML5 comment markup - HTML5 input types for comment form and search form - Provide context for translation in search form and comments heading - Twenty Thirteen to be designed with accessibility as a priority
  • 12. Opinionated Design - Full of fun design details to create a warm and welcoming vibe. - Ships with three header images that work well with the bold color scheme. - One-column layout is the default — theme works best with no sidebar. - Optional display fonts for beautiful typography. - A flexible, wide layout that looks great on large screens yet remains device-agnostic. - Bundled icon font that makes zooming, printing, and recoloring much easier and more accessible.
