New monthly update web version

MMW nov update screencapPhilip created a new template for the web version of the monthly email updates.  The November 2007 update is built on the new template.  This is a vast improvement over previous web versions, created by copying, pasting, and then trying to fix the HTML from a preview message.

Constant Contact, which we use for our email updates, has some nice features.  But one feature that makes us mad month after month is how hard it is to build a web version of your email.  They want to charge extra for that.  The HTML is a complete mess, and this process is never as easy as it should be.

Now that we have the new template, we just have to manually copy and paste each story from CC into our page.  Still a waste of time doing something CC could very easily provide for free, but at least it allows us to avoid fighting with CC’s coding.  And this way it actually renders properly.
