    Doesn't look terrible for people with a slight web background.

    No mention of video or audio editing, podcasting, or some of that other crap the MLB wants for all their web positions.

    Quite an interesting position. How well do you think one needs to know HTML? I have a decent background, but I'm certainly not proficient.

    Neither am I. I think like anything, if you are good at all the other stuff, and decent at html they will give you a shot. They can teach a writer how to do some harder commands in a few hours, they can't teach an IT guy to write in a few hours.
