    Depends on what you want to do.

    The initial HTML5 Boilerplate (http://html5boilerplate.com) is meant to give developers a "clean slate" from which to start developing. It also includes a lot of best-practices and work-arounds that developers should be using or might need.

    The WP Boilerplate Theme (http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/boilerplate) I developed pushed all that HTML5 Boilerplate goodness into a base WP Theme. However, my theme is meant to be used as a Parent Theme, which would require you to develop a Child Theme (http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes) to sit on top of it.

    Other frameworks will likely give you some variation of the above. The key for you is finding which gives you the right starting point for your project. It might be one of, or none of, the above options.

    Good luck,
