Would definitely like a look.

We have a general tool that we use for our clients that uses JavaScript
to traverse a tree and at each node you can add more nodes, edit the
current one or delete. Each node is in the database and is exported as
XML - so as far as data entry goes that's covered.

I'm planning the same (free that is). I also thought a cute little side
effect would be to use the vCard standard and we could all pass our
business cards to each other using a URL with XSL like syntax, like:[id=32]

on the end of our emails. So rather than passing their actual details,
you pass a pointer to your details. Any comments?

(And *another* cute spin-off is that people could get therefore create
their own namespace URI, as discussed in some previous threads.)

Anyway, the aim is still to produce a site that 'runs itself' so if you
have any other features it should have, feel free to mention them.
