25 HTML5 and CSS3 WordPress Themes

Why do you often hear that a WordPress theme should be developed using HTML5 or CSS3? Well, it is because two of the most common Internet languages are HTML5 and CSS3. Most WordPress themes are coded with these two. HTML5 stands for Hypertext Markup Language Revision 5, which is used in the structure and presentation of Internet content. It is the fifth revision and the present version of the HTML standard. CSS3, meanwhile, stands for Cascading Style Sheet. It is the language used in the presentation of web pages. CSS3 allows the website to adapt to any screen size, big or small. Together, these languages help in making your website smooth and fast.
