well, there's the option of using something like MS Word... from
there, you can feed it into apps like Quark Xpress and FrontPage...
but since i hate FP, i likely won't be doing it...

there's also XML... you can use Adobe InDesign to import the XML into
a layout, and use XSLT to style the XML to HTML for the web...
