I am a computer geek with interest in Java, C#, and Apache Solr, business models, visualization and whatever else catches my fancy.

I wrote a book on Solr: http://bit.ly/ZPSSt4 and maintain useful Solr resources at http://www.solr-start.com/

comment Sub-Theme (based on Taxonomies)
Yes, it needs to be in a header of the page. But single.php is a full page. Worst case, make it a copy of default.php (which has full functionality) and just add your extra include in the appropriate area.

Why don't you just have a CSS file with name that incorporates the tag name? Then just get the tag name in the single.php template and use it to form the CSS file reference. It is probably easier to try it than to think it through. You can even do it with default 20/20 theme.

comment How to search and replace text in all posts of a wordpress.com blog (NOT wordpress.org one)?
@nam-gi-vu, I think if you export and import WordPress-specific XML format you can preserve the dates. It's been a while since I tested though. And of course, option 3 is more fun.

comment Creating a Static Website based on a WordPress Website?
Just an update that the original answer strategy did work. Couple of additional hints is not to link to WordPress RSS feed from template as that confuses wget. Download it as a separate command. Also, Wordpress bakes in full URLs for missing resources, so it is useful to do a search/replace after downloading to remove the host part: /bin/find scraped-en/ -type f -exec sed -i 's|hostname[^/]*||g' {} \;

comment how could I have a user signing up for a blog, be assigned to that blog only
Are you using old WPMU or new WordPress 3.0+ Network? In new WordPress, I don't think you would have any problems. The user gets a default role as per that sub-blog's settings. What do you see on user's admin screen. Do they actually show membership where they do not belong?

Textboxes only. Dropdowns will be in English and I will convert them in the theme lookups.

comment Setting up partial Right-to-Left admin interface
This is not quite it, as I don't want the whole admin interface switch direction, just edit fields. But it is helpful as a start.

A meta-meta work? Sounds good. Somebody needs to do it and I am sure it would be appreciated.
