I like to think I'm a fair representation of the target user, which means I read enough instructions to get started, then go till I stop.  The first stop is when I created a new site, opened the index.html and promptly overwrote SiteName with a nice friendly name, which naturally generated
Script Error: illegal token or identifier "Check" in \index.html

"Check" being the name I inserted.  The error was obvious, since I had only made the one change. Fortunately I have two instances of the app, so I can easily change it back to the default, but on first glance my "Oops" was quickly followed by "Now what did that used to be?"

Agreed. The first time I ran the app, the first thing I saw is a page with variables and a for loop! A product that's aimed at non-programmers shouldn't dump the user into a screen like that the first time they use the app.
