When you're styling your checkout, remember to consider its component pages. Depending on checkout settings, there are at least four checkout pages, and at most six.

For example, to style the name of the products inside the order summary:
|Use this||Instead of this|

Modernizr: we use Modernizr to detect if the browser supports certain CSS properties like RGBA, multiple background images, box-shadows, pseudo-elements, and inline SVG.

Fields, modals, and notices
Field states and classes
Use the classes in your tables to style the three field states to fit your theme.
|Field state||CSS class|
|Default||No class required|
Policies (refund, privacy, and terms of service) and processing/forwarding pages are presented in a full-screen modal.
Use warnings to notify the user that the total cost of their order changed before they completed their purchase. For example if inventory is automatically adjusted.
Use clear error messages to communicate errors to the user.
