I did my first website ( reinecke-naturfotografie.de ) some years ago using xhtml, css and jquery. This one ( gruene-linden.de ) was the first using cms - and it was easy work after all using your theme! Took some time - but I could realize most of my purposes.
(Would have appreciated an RSS logo :-) )
PS: I hope this theme is supported for the next Years - WP is developing very fast... :-)
