I've heard this "use blog" tossed about a bit, can someone elaborate?
Last I heard, blog was short for weblog, and I can't think how keeping
an online diary would help with webdesign...

Ahhh... but I do. Used to use the Windows version when it was free,
toyed with trial versions more recently. It is, above and beyond, my
favorite HTML editor.... highlights the tags in color, gives you menu
options to work with... it's not drag & drop from what I recall, but
it's a GOOD editor other wise... more features than Netscape Composer
has (Netscape AFAIK has NEVER been able to do tables, and even lists are
stretching it a little... most of my pages now are done in a combination
of Netscape and text editor/HTML for the fancy stuff)
