There is a special zero capital gains tax rate through 2010 for people with low enough taxable income to be in the 10 or 15% tax bracket. I’m not a tax pro but I would think that this would probably apply to real estate sales but I am not 100% sure. (Any definitive answers?)

Yes, it applies to real estate sales as well. I don't remember if the original post dealt with a vacation rental property or just a second home. If it was a rental property, there are some other considerations that apply.
