I would *rather* use vi and HTML-by-hand.   And produce very simple, readable,  
uncluttered pages.  I don't use many graphics, e.g., I use the strength of 
HTML, php, blah ** 3.  

I'm ready to learn this "CMS" that Ted mentioned if I knew what it was!  And 
if its in ports.   AFAIK, the only pages that look bizarre are my 
initial "www" (and one other based on it).   I'll google around to find out 
what CMS is...
