Lots of helpful information there. I've used your method to correct a
lot of the bad urls, so the site's looking a bit better.
On this one highlighted point, my question would be, is it OK --
Googlewise -- to use the default (/?p=) style for internal links,
knowing that they will be forwarded to the friendly urls by the 301
redirect in my .htaccess file?
Or am I creating a redundancy problem for Google by allowing friendly
url Permalinks while I continue to point to those default urls?
