  1. Is it possible to create a child theme of a child theme (sub-child theme)? I tried using style.css to point to the child theme I've created, but only the initial child theme shows up to activate, not the sub-child theme.

    My guess is that you'll have to import everything from your child theme, and modify that as a regular child theme for thematic.
    With importing you get almost clean-sheet, so that's pretty much the same thing as sub-child.
    Tho I might be wrong, I'm new here ;)

  3. The short answer is No. I was trying to dig up a post that mentioned all the reasons it won't work and why it isn't a good idea but couldn't find it.

    It sounds like Blue_Bannana is suggesting to just keep things logically separated and that would be your best bet. There are plenty of ways of doing so, imports would work with CSS, and you could also check this post by Kathy on organizing the Function PHP, at best you could keep a separate PHP file and pull it through a require_once
