But there was one flaw, that still persists to today -- email links on webpages still open in the local client, instead of the webmail site.


I think that's one of the (many) reasons why contact forms have largely superseded mailto: links. Of course, that doesn't fix the problem if you get a mailto link inside an EMail message.

Would it not be lovely to get rid of a lot of the FTP cycling for the sake of modifying a few lines of code?


That's what SSH and command-line text editors are for ;)

I've noticed not all web-developers are great with the commandline, so are very good with Photoshop though.

I love command line ... (work on linux every day and so...)
and ...
I can use Photoshop fluently ... (with virtualbox)

my non-static "web apps" are xhtml strict compliant,
i work with agencies every day, and i care about semantic, and because you noticed English is not my native language ( Frenchy ;-) ), i can assure you that with a brain, a lot is possible...
