redirecting to the xml editor
Yup you got it. Even if the hosting is done on site, the webmaster and 
sysadmin are often two different people. We'll just go with the <redirect> 
approach, it makes sense in our application and probably will make sense to 
our users. For this app, btw, the channel developers (there are hundreds of 
them at all sizes and shapes of sites) are mostly webmasters not system 
operators. Dave
