Twenty Ten Child Theme for WordPress: Refined

I am a fan of the WordPress’s default Twenty Ten (2010) and Twenty Eleven (2011) themes. I mainly like the simple and clean look of these themes. They are also properly coded so that helps (I don’t like a wild theme).

I created a twenty ten child theme for one of my WordPress sites and I thought I would share the child theme with you. The theme looks like the following (click on the image to see a larger image):
