On-the-fly template-based blog rendering
If you want to get a feeling for what the rendering engine here can do (which may not be so impressive looking at other tools, but a lot better than than rev20 of BlogX which I started from), check out the "Pick a theme" bar down at the bottom of the page.
The default theme for this page is currently "newtelligence Blue". You can always go back to the default by clicking "Reset". When you select any of the other themes, you'll get a cookie set and the rendering engine will use the template whenever you come and look at the site.
[As of this moment there are two little bugs in the logic which will (1) have that cookie span the whole site and (2) will render the page inaccessible for you if the cookie goes bad. Both should be fixed today.]
