Deepak Dixit commented on OFBIZ-5040:

Paul could you please let us which pattern will use for widget rendering?
First will have to decide the new pattern for widget rendering then will change the ftl and
form widget macros to use that pattern.
As per current pattern ofbiz using table for rendering the back-office.

>             Project: OFBiz
>          Issue Type: Improvement

> 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.
