1. Writers can create HTML Articles, images can be Flash or JPG/PNG/GIF
2. Editors can create Issues, composed by selecting Articles
3. Editors can see each article's publication history (e.g. when and in what newsletter an article was published)
4. Users can subscribe/unsubscribe to newsletters
5. Admins can subscribe/unsubscribe users to newsletters
6. Newsletters are sent as HTML emails
7. There's a log of what newsletter has been sent to whom
