Feature requests

OK, I am finally a CityDesk user.  I'd like to cast my vote for a few feature requests.  I'm sure these have come up before, so I'm mostly just trying to increase their airtime.

1.  A little more control in the editor.  At the very least, I want to apply H1, H2, H3, etc.  Joel, I've read your rationale about the separation of content and markup.  I have no problem with the philosophy.  I just want more.  Headings would appease me for now, but I'd really like to see font face control or even better, a dropdown list of styles.

2.  Publish via ssh.  On the bright side, the ftp code seems to work well.

3.  New feature idea:  Template folders.

Template families are a nifty concept, but I don't actually want every single article republished.

Instead, I want to define a special folder with two attributes:

1.  A condition (just like a foreach loop).

2.  A template.

At publish time, every article that matches the specified condition would be published with the specified template, into the folder.
