Just to thank you, Jacque, belatedly - I also have never had to  
produce a web site in anger (I don't count uploads of family photos  
and the like) and felt just like Joe.

What I suppose this conversation does show is the enormous range of  
users (developers) who can and do benefit from Rev - all the way from  
hobbyists to very serious commercial developers, with an equal range  
of technical requirements. IMO there is no other development  
environment, certainly not a cross-platform one, that can meet such a  
huge spectrum of needs.

[followed by a nice long explanation for the uninitiated]
