I got another recommendation for Pelican so I gave it a try, and I will
probably start using it.  Thanks for mentioning it.

Though I must say that even with Pelican the local copy isn't
_literally_ the same as the server copy, and _of course_ first time I
published, there was a style difference (due to the freeking Google
font, which I promptly removed from the stylesheet).  _Exactly_ why I
still want them to be the same, relative links and all.

Please *no* private copies of mailing list or newsgroup messages.
