HTML5 LogoThis time a slightly different post from the usual “Photoshop stuff”.

Today I want to share with you something web design related – HTML5 Boilerplate.

What is HTML5 Boilerplate, you may be asking? HTML5 Boilerplate is an interesting project aiming at web designers and developers for integrating HTML5 into their websites.

HTML5 Boilerplate is full of best practises and techniques for creating cross-browser HTML5 websites that also work in older web browsers like Internet Explorer 6 (yes, you heard it right).

HTML5 Boilerplate is a template that can be modified. You can make your own changes or additions. Its source is open, so anyone can use it and integrate it into their projects. HTML5 Boilerplate is available on GitHub for your watching/forking/commenting pleasure:
