Since you are skilled with code, you could use the Starkers template and achieve a high degree of customization. I'm not so skilled so I rely on tweaking ready-made templates, which still works very well.
Interesting ... ta for the info, DMC.
SEO isn't a big thing for me, since the idea is for the site to augment business cards.
I guess I was looking at replacing the YouTubes because I read that they are a bit of a security risk. That could be the case for any embedded video but I don't know.
