[theme-reviewers] Some qs about Black Queen 1.0 theme

Good evening,

First, I must point out: TwentyTen is *not* the "perfect sample" Theme. It
is merely the current default WordPress Theme. It was released before the
current Theme Review Guidelines went into effect. That said, I'll try to
answer your questions:

1) I would question whether the Theme output for a non-default [gallery]
shortcode should be cause for not approving the Theme. If the Theme outputs
properly with the default shortcode (i.e. 3 columns), I would argue that it
should be acceptable.

2) Probably, wp_link_pages() is called inside the same container as
the_content(), and is not wrapped in a container that clears floats, causing
the post-page links to float into the content. Try adding "clear:both;" to

3) It means that custom CSS should be added using the appropriate hook,
rather than hard-coded into the document head. For example, add a
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my-custom-css' ) where 'my-custom-css()'
defines your custom scripts.

4) Again, TwentyTen is *not* a "perfect sample" Theme. There is no guarantee
that it will meet any given guideline (though we certainly hope it does!).
