I have a great theme in mind that I would like to create. Just some questions first.
1. Do I need to code the theme in pure XHTML or can I use some of HTML5 simpler syntax like, <!doctype html>, <style></style>, <meta charset="UTF-8" ect.... .
2. My theme will rely mostly on the use of circles. From what I read on Google its possible to create nice circles with CSS3. Will this be compatible with wordpress? And if I use some CSS3 do I HAVE to use the HTML5 doc-type then?
3.I never done this before so any ideas on tutorials and tools to use would be great.( Im on windows 7 btw ).
