Experimenting in HTML5 and CSS3

I decided to experiment with some of the new elements in HTML 5 and built my blog theme from scratch (with the help of the Carrington framework though). I’m now rolling article, section, header, footer and other stuff. Because IE needs a Javascript hack to enable support for these elements, I wouldn’t consider doing this in any client work, but hey, this is MY blog!

If you see subtle gradients here and there, congratulations: you’re running a recent build of Safari, Chrome or Firefox. In all versions of IE everything should still look just fine, even IE6. I haven’t done thorough checking yet though!

My other aims with this theme were to create a very readable blog, with clearly visible titles and separation of content. I hope I succeeded, although this is obviously a work in progress, just like any other website out there.
