Do not fall into the trap of assuming that in-CMS editing of templates 
== "user-friendly interface".  

If you're doing anything even remotely interesting with a template or code, an 
HTML textarea is a horribly unfriendly interface.  Even Notepad is better in 
most cases.

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of 
exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, 
which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to 
himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession 
of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it."  -- Thomas
