    I am pretty new to wordpress. I would like to ask that can i use Html5 and css3 to create a theme for my website? I do not know php well but i can use html5, css3 and javascript to do all that i want on my website. Any suggestion? I read on wordpress codex that i can use only html, css and php to design a theme. Is this true? Btw i am using WordPress 3.0.3, i mentioned 3.0.1 above because there was no option of 3.0.3.

    Sure, you can use HTML5 and CSS3, but you'll need to get your hands dirty with some PHP to implement the necessary functions: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference

    You can use as much JS as u like. WP is fitted with JQuery and Scriptaculous anyway and u can add anything else u need.

    The WP Toolbox is a stripped down WP theme in html5 already. Its in the theme repo.

    yr roadmap if u like for yr skillset is css, html then php..........u can do a lot in functions.php without editing the theme itself too....or u can just edit templates..............either way keep yr theme u start with intact, copy it and maybe run a new theme or child theme off its parent...........on an upgrade wp can overwrite the default theme........there is a great community here and a ton of docs in the codex...........it can be heavy going but it is all in there somewhere.
