  1. Thanks a lot for this amazing article. Before this article theming concept was just a nightmare for me. But Man u nailed it.

  2. Thanks for the great article! A couple confusing parts:
    – You write “ N/B: When declaring CSS variables, the syntax is **–**”… I would remove the asterisks as it’s unclear for beginners if asterisks are actually part of the syntax of your custom way of highlighting the double dash
    – “ perfect for creating theme0aware websites” the 0 should be a hyphen

  3. Thank you for this very informative post! I have to admit, however, that I spent quite a few moments trying to decipher your code for the white text/black text example. It was confusing because the ‘white text’ is actually black and visa-versa. I had my eyes crossing before I realized that. Perhaps you should change the white text to say “Black Text” (since it is) or simply take away the ‘Text’ part of the string. But great content!
