WebFonts Imageset and Icons

Oculus supports WebFonts-based scalable vector icons. No images are used in this style. All icons and imagesets have been converted into sprites. This adds some new indicators (poll icon, unapproved icon, etc.) in addition to other useful features.

For example: Installing matching language imagesets is not needed as we removed text and replaced it with pictographic language.

Responsive Layout

Oculus's responsive grid system is designed for desktops, tablets, and smartphones. Each with minor modifications to enhance compatibility in each mode.
