Blake says XSM's editing interface is unintuitive. I can see some
room for improvement, but straight HTML in a textarea seems pretty

Just to add to this. I do have access to update the e.org site. For
various reasons I don't use XSM. Ok, I decided to try, just to put a bit
of a 'what we're doing' up on e.org today.
So, I log in, click the news page. Ok, hit edit. No, that's just editing
old posts (of which I can't edit as I guess their owned by other people)
Ok, that's cool.
Click 'new' that makes sense, make a new post. But then I see, create a new:
embed Embed a page or site inside an XSM page. This uses the IFRAME tag
and is not fully supported by all browsers.
events A simple event system that will grow with time
glossary A glossary page for definitions of terms or abbreviations.
login A login page for your site, keeps a unified look and saves typing
the site name
news A blog-like news page with archives and syndication
At which point I say, what the hell? How do I add a new news item. I
don't want to add a 'page' or is a news item a page? But that new page
says it will appear on the side bar.
Maybe I'm missing something. But at a minimum we'll need some
documentation to tell us how to do the simple things (which currently
seem a bit difficult).
For now, back out of XSM and no posts to e.org for me.
