What are the best blank themes to use for starting a new theme for TF? I would love to hear what some of the authors have to say. Probably everyone evolves their own starter theme but likely those began with something else. I would love to see what is out there that can be used here.

Thanks to all.

I love the HTML5 Starter Pack available here.

It’s got everything needed for a basic HTML5 theme: jQuery, Font-face, CSS media queries, base classes…

You could try this:

Although I would recommend starting from scratch if you’re going to be producing premium themes.

contempoinc, I am getting the feeling that you are right and I will have to make my own as I am hoping to produce premium themes. (You clearly have lots of knowledge about it. Thanks…)

Which licenses are safe for including in premium themes, if any? GPL ? MIT?
