KOFFEE KART ASSETS
I’ve gotten a lot of hits by people looking for the Muse “Koffee Kart” assets. I searched for a bit this morning and didn’t find anything myself, so I contacted James Fritz who did the tutorials on Muse at Lynda.com.

Plus many of the features are added to avoid touching text, almost to the point of obsession. It’s been touted as a replacement for iWeb, but how does it really weigh in?
