I'm all for it. My initial feeling about plain html content was one of
disappointment but I think we can make it look good nonetheless. We
still haven't had anyone come forth to design so we may very well be
forced to go somewhat 'plain-jane' anyways...

This strategy is clearly not my area of expertise but I'm excited and am
looking forward to learning how to work on a site in this manner. That
said, who here is confident enough with this technique to provide a set
of instructions? or perhaps, to start with, a working plan...Honestly
I'm not 100$ clear on the details of doing this.
