HTML5Press lives here. HTML5Press is a WordPress theme based on the HTML5 template by Jesper.
A demo is available at html5press.com, but you can also see it in action here at longren.org. I switched from the Mystique theme to HTML5Press here at longren.org on 8/9/2011. You can view the project at Github. You can download the latest development versions of HTML5Press at Github.
Obviously, this theme is meant to be viewed in a modern web browser, like Google Chrome or Firefox 4. The theme looks nice in Internet Explorer, but it doesn’t look as nice as it would in a modern browser. No rounded corners, transitions, or box shadows will show in Internet Explorer.

Note: the following needs updated, as there are many more options now. Currently, the HTML5Press options page offers five options. The first option lets you enable or disable the “back to top” floating button. The second option lets you define the image size that’s linked to on featured images. The third allows you to select a color scheme to use. The fourth defines how many posts to include on the featured post slider. And the last option is the category you’d like the featured post slider to pull posts from.
