Set up a weblog for each user or group of users and way they go. This
satisfies all your criteria and more:

A) You don't have to know HTML to contribute to a blog, though typically
you can apply tags if you know them.
B) All your blogs can be based on the same HTML template.
C) All your users have to do is type in the box and click Publish. In
terms of set-up, it's just a matter of creating an HTML template,
installing the software and away you go.
D) How's $40 a year per blog, or free if you go with an open source

A few other compelling points:

E) Blogs are arranged chronologically, so the freshest information is at
the top.
F) You can categorize the information that users enter, and display
customized pages. So, if there were a blog on African animals, and some
users only wanted to read about giraffes while others only wanted to
read about hippos, the entries can be sorted appropriately.
G) Many blogging tools enable you to edit your Weblog from your browser,
so the client-side installation is typically very lightweight or

Any questions, let me know. Thanks. DB.

Subject: Creating HTML Pages


We need to come up with a system that allows anyone in our organization
to create web pages that will be posted our intranet. These pages will
contain mainly tech notes and procedures about various development tools
and products. Basically, we want to provide a framework that can be used
by development groups to share information.

The constraints for this project are: (a) We can't force the users to
code HTML (although some may choose to do so), (b) The pages must have a
consistent look and feel, (c) The implemented system must be relatively
easy-to-use and require minimal training, and (d) It must be fairly

Does anyone have any ideas for this project?

We are toying with the idea of using Word as the HTML editor. Is there
any way to apply a style sheet to a html page created using a Word
template? Would we be asking for trouble by implementing such a system?
