There really are not many elements needed. The ones I use in my HTML approach
are more or less only <em>, <strong> and <code>. Headers, byline and such does
not really need markup because they are easily identified and the layout person
can easily see them and manually set correct style (if needed).

Using a suitable CSS-file the author can preview the file using his web browser.
No special program needed, just a text editor and a web browser. I like that
minimalistic approach:-)
