Most available themes display an array of flags to select languages. While this has some positive features, there are reasons to favor a dropdown language selection as in the Standard theme:
* People may be put off by having to choose a flag of a foreign country to select their language.
* If your host permits using all languages the many flags displayed take an inordinate amount of screen real estate and affect layout. Flags inhibit using a theme with all languages supported.
* Flags are inherently nationalistic and should their unnecessary use may be unwelcome.
While I'd prefer doing away with flags altogether, having an option with themes (perhaps two available versions or a setup flag) would be satisfactory.
I'm not a CSS person, or I'd work on it myself.
