I write all the HTML code for quadium.net myself, using XEmacs. The graphics are designed using the Gimp. I keep two copies of the site around, and have Apache listening on a different port for previewing. When I had dialup, I used to use rsync over OpenSSH to get it to the server, but now I just rsync it into the "live" directory.
The HTML code itself is completely browser-independent, and I've used server-side includes for all the layout and graphics, to simplify administration. I use cascading style sheets (CSS) to set all the fonts and colors, which both keeps my HTML clean and allows me to change the site's entire look by editing one file, although I'm trying to wean myself away from being such a fascist about "look & feel". The most recent log entry is copied to the front page by a custom Perl script.
I'm connected through Speakeasy on a 1.5/384 RADSL, and I host the site from piro. When I was in Colorado, my Internet access and site hosting were done through dimensional.com, a local Colorado ISP. Without a doubt, they are the best service provider I have ever encountered. Access is fast and reliable, they were willing to set things up the way I wanted them, and best of all, they actually know what they're doing.
