Things to adopt from other drupal themes

Been swapping themes on this website, and note some good practices that I’d like to adopt for my default site.

  1. vertically aligned search box in the top menu: alternate / lincoln’s revenge does it well
  2. clean layouts like a printed page: chameleon does this well
  3. blockquote techniques – the left bar at the indentation of the quote is good
  4. different type face for headline titles – say using Georgia to distinguish headline from body text
  5. lines to separate content blocks
  6. different block style for “sticky” blocks
  7. distinct menu headers like the type used by gworks
  8. simple clean design like pushbutton (is there a phptemplate version?) – like the large clear fonts and colours… the menu columns are nicely distinguished
  9. the squiggle dividers from Tokyo / Persian is a nice touch
  10. how do I make dropdown menus work?
