HTML5 & CSS3The theme uses semantic HTML5 markup, and also gives you HTML5 video shortcodes as well as tinyMCE buttons. CSS3 is used extensively in the theme from transitions to box-shadows. The use of HTML5 and CSS3 in turn makes the theme fully viewable in iPhone, iPad devices and mobile readers.
MultilingualCharcoal already comes built-in with multi-language support. You don’t need to install any additional third-party plugins to create language-specific content or to add language switchers. You also don’t need to use third-party software to do your language file translations since the theme comes with its own language editor.
MultipurposeCharcoal provides multiple options for fonts, colors, backgrounds, blog page layouts, and portfolio page layouts for all your design needs. Check out the “Mosaic Portfolio Layout” in the live demo for a nice treat.
The Theme AdminThe theme’s admin is easy to use and smart enough to only show you the options that are relevant to what you need. For example, the admin provides color pickers if you use a transparent background so that you can make sure your content is easily readable. The admin is intuitive enough to notify you of the installation steps you need to take to properly configure the theme, perfect for first time theme users. Help tooltips are also available for almost all of the theme options.
