Right now, the problem is that any significant degree of WordPress theme customization requires that users start wrangling with CSS and XHTML.

My goal is that 80% of users can make the theme customizations that they want without hitting that CSS/XHTML wall.  There's no reason such a theme can't be elegant and tight.

I'm not asking you to agree with me, but I would like you to keep an open mind at least until you see it.   :^)
