Mmm.. Web Development

Last Tuesday's XML class sparked my interest in content management for websites, and I spent a few hours today setting up a new system for my domain. I can now update content in a directory on my local machine, use XWeb to apply stylesheets to the bare content and populate my local Apache directory, and then rsync on the main web server to update the public content.

Not terribly interesting to most of you, but it has a high geek factor.

So, now I've had a little experience running concurrent development and production web servers, and using a content-management system to organize documents and simplify site-wide updates. I'll probably make a page describing the process, and I'm wont to do.
