I am moving this thread to the developers list from the documentation  
list.  In the administration user experience survey 37% of  
respondents indicated managing inconsistency of themes was difficult  
and 18% indicated it was very difficult.   Both results were the top  
responses in their categories.  For the purposes of this conversation  
let's assume inconsistencies mean: Does the theme have bugs in  
display? Does the theme have cross-browser problems?  Do two themes I  
want to use put elements in different and inconsistent place on the  

We went through the CSS is outside the scope of Drupal arguments on  
the documentation list, so there is no need to pursue that here.  I  
have put together an overview of tips and techniques for managing  
inconsistency in themes, with help from Mav3rck and Occy in  
#cstheme.  http://drupal.org/node/37156

I am now looking for more techniques and specific development  
suggestions of what we could add to Drupal in the 4.7 final release  
to help with administering themes.  Wild ideas are welcome.
