In all this discussion about using 'site editors', I'd
like to make an analogy to a real-life actitivity that
most of us engage in - driving a car. Not everyone
will become a race car driver or a stunt driver, but
everyone does have to acquire some basic skills before
they are turned loose on the public streets and
Likewise, not all of us are going to become
professional web masters. All of us should, however,
get past the stage where we say, "I don't know
anything about computers and this HTML stuff". If you
don't know now -- find out. There's tons of
self-study information on the web. You *can* learn it
if you want to learn it. (need some pointers to the
best lessons online?)
When driving a car, cruise control is a nice tool, but
you still need to know how to make the car go forward
and how to stop it without the cruise control.
Likewise, the web editing programs and site editors
and nice tools, but you still need to know what HTML
tags are and how to upload files.
Every one of us had to learn all these things. Shoot,
the WWW has been around less than 10 years! I found a
document authored by Tim Berners-Lee in 1991 where he
describes what the HTTP protocol 'could' be.
Do You Yahoo!?
