>                 Key: OFBIZ-5040
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-5040
>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: ALL APPLICATIONS
>            Reporter: Paul Piper
>            Priority: Major
>              Labels: css, ftl, html, webapp, widget, widgetrendering
> I am sure that this is a common thing to know: the current backoffice 
> application relies heavily on widgets. This is good, but the current 
> standard-html-structure is not flexible enough and often lacks proper w3c 
> implementation. 
> To make matters worse, you can often find applications avoiding widgets at 
> all and rather overriding the standards with custom ftl implementations. It 
> is these customizations that break the html on numerous screens and make it 
> difficult, if not tedious to create new themes for the backoffice. 
> This task is hence to:
> * Find a consensus on a new widget standard
> * Go over each of the application ftls and convert these to the new standard 
> * Recreate the themes and simplify/clean-up special rules
> Since redoing the theme is a rather large task, we should consider to add an 
> additional css for now which stylises the replacement html instead of working 
> with the old.
