Backend widget & application HTML clean-up

      Bug Crush Event - 21/2/2015

      Description

      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.
