I'm just getting into WordPress and I've been playing around with a few themes, but then I ran into Quark. Wow. Every feature of the theme works beautifully, and the theme is very easy to reconfigure.
Perhaps the greatest feature, other than the theme's multiple options, is the commenting. Everywhere you look in the PHP and CSS you see nicely commented code and script. THANK YOU, Anthony, for those nuggets of gold you included which nicely explain exactly what the code is doing, and how to activate, or deactivate, the function or script. The WordPress learning curve is steep, but not impossible, with your help.
