The 'Blank Theme' for Magento is available via MagentoConnect. With 'Blank Theme' the Magento team answers the call of numerous community members out there who's been inquiring about an extra light theme to use as a basis for theme customization. With this theme we've removed all the custom CSS formerly used in Default and Modern Theme, and replaced them with minor typography and positioning CSS assignments. References to the class names were left in the CSS files to provide a solid starting ground for designers/developers. Markups were also revisited and cleaned up in theme-level.
Download, customize, and enjoy the new ultra light Magento theme!
