Did the dead. Grabbed the template, Google Sitemaps using Movable Type, and setup a Sitemap for or at least the blog portion. If this actually takes off and works I might add the gallery.

Labels vs. Folders

Couldn't agree more, Rafe on Labels versus folders, labels win. I have fallen in love with labels and started experimenting with them in Thunderbird, dumbing everything into one folder with lots of labeling.

Xopus is our wysiwyg browser based XML editor.

Xopus is easy to use and to implement.
For input it requires data (XML), style (XSLT) and rules (Schema).
Xopus performs some magic on this and turns it into an editor.

To be fair my curent profession, the programer behind the website, also has some of the came concerns for what CMSs will do to their job. But one thing to remember all of us in the computer field are parasites that will be dropped as soon as society can. Computers are there as a tool, very cool tool, and computer support jobs, like developers/programers, are going to eventually be replaced by a very small shell script or something like that.
