True, but we ARE talking about making it ewasy for users to customize their
themes. Whether sandboxing it or making a new Kubrick that is easier to
modify. How do you get away from web development? It's a web software with
web techniques and web benefits. I don't think referring somebody to a
different resource means they have to become web developers. In fact,
XHTML/CSS is intertwined with just "doing what we do" everyday in blogging.
Am I wrong?
