Speaking for myself, as a user of Forrest for just such a purpose, I can 
say that it fits my needs rather well.  I wanted an easy-to-use 
application that accepts many different formats and produces a nicely 
skinned website.  In particular, I wanted something that was 
open-source, not specific to Windows and would be something that could 
be used by my eventual successor without extensive training to keep the 
current format.

While Forrest does not match perfectly, it is the best fit for my needs 
that I've been able to find.  I won't offer an opinion on the RT yet as 
I'm still thinking.

I look forward to the evolution of this RT.  Thanks!
