Hoho, seems like someone else understands how nice it would be to have the Slash templates working nicely with CSS :)
I think that I could make a stable / usable release of my Strict Slash theme out in say 2-3 weeks.
That would include valid XHTML 1.1 templates ( and a script to downgrade to HTML 4.01 Strict ), all Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 [w3.org] satisfied ( and some Priority 3 checkpoints as well ). Validation of articles and comments. And a good-looking default style sheet ( will not look like the default slashcode theme for various reasons, but that doesn't mean that it isn't possible to do that using CSS ). Plus some smaller things.
Once I've done that, the theme would only be updated when there is a change in Slash that should be made in this theme as well. Given that this is slash cvs it does happen pretty often.
And I would branch of this and do bigger changes like getting Slash to comply with the Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 [w3.org] in a different branch and can later be released as the next stable version of my theme.
I think that this would make it easier both for me to use the theme on a live site and possibly for someone else that might want to use my theme.
But I'm not sure if this changes anything for you tf23. If anyone has comments / questions my email is peter (at) openflows.org .
