The simple theme renders "bare bones" HTML elements. The simple theme is most often used as a starting point for other themes. (See Extending Themes for more.)
For example, the textfield tag renders the HTML <input/> tag without a label, validation, error reporting, or any other formatting or functionality.
|Both the xhtml theme and css_xhtml theme extend the simple theme. Look to them for examples of how to build on the foundation laid by the simple theme.|
