I once had the task of prepping an HTML newsletter every week. We had a general template, and the weekly content was prepped by a designer in Fireworks, with links and everything already sorted.

This used to take me "half of forever" every week, especially since lots of times there would be errors in the newsletter that necessitated starting my whole process from scratch every time. I think it was Fridays.
