Development for HTML5 began in 2004, however 2012 will most likely be the banner year that HTML5 goes mainstream…or at least a little more mainstream. While full adoption is still years away, we are going to start seeing more and more Free/Premium HTML5 WordPress Themes in the coming months.
This new standardization will be especially helpful for mobile oriented sites, and from what we can see with the Responsive WordPress Themes of today, there is a lot to look forward to when HTML5 is in full force.
HTML5 WordPress Themes: What To Look For
Since HTML5 is just beginning to come into the mainstream development world, the choices can be fairly limited in terms of true HTML5 WordPress Themes. Keep in mind that just because a theme says it is HTML5 compatible, this doesn’t in itself mean the theme is 100% HTML5. There will be parts of the theme that use HTML5 tags and code, but since this iteration of HTML is still in its relative infancy, there are no true 100% HTML5 WP Themes.

Here are some great HTML5 frameworks for WordPress Theme development. If you know of other HTML5 WordPress Frameworks that you think should be included, please feel free to contact us and we’ll add it to the list.
