kevin -

i was put in charge of dealing with our online store presence aka: the
yahoo store debacle.

they use a proprietary coding format called rtml for the markup along with
some obviously less that intuitive editing features. i thought that taking
over the design and implementation of our store presence would just be
something new to learn, but found it to be extraordinarily frustrating and
a timesuck when weighed next to my other responsibilities.

after breaking down and calling the yahoo store tech support, i came to
find that there literally is /no/ real documentation provided aside from
what is vaguely communicated while in the online editor. my jaw dropped at
this and promptly went on to rationalize the use of a vendor who
specializes in dealing with this. i'd be glad to pass the recommendation
on to you and anyone else off-list if you'd like so as to avoid name

i still wish they would at least provide some kind of developer help but
have yet to see anything.

good luck,

// matt
