Add more samples to the theme browser's posts

    I appreciate being able to preview themes through the theme browser. The variety of the sample posts goes a long way towards preventing me downloading a theme only to find that it's not as nice as its thumbnail.

    It would be more useful if the sample posts included a few more examples of common elements:

    • Headings (within a post)
    • Multiple comments on one post (to determine whether a theme does alternate backgrounds, etc.)
    • Comments from people with Gravatars
    • Comments by the post author
    • A post with trackbacks
    • A post with comments off but trackbacks on (and vice versa)
    • Smileys (many themes try to style these as regular images and it looks odd)
    • A post that uses the "more" tag
    • Images in various alignments (e.g. right-aligned with wrapped text)

    I have a set of posts that have most of these features (for my own development) and would be happy to pass it on if that's helpful.

    Oh, I'd also add some images with captions.
