HTML and scripts fits well into CVS.  The hardest part is to teach the web
designers how to use it.  Nobody saw the need of using it at my former
workplace, so we never did.

I'd say that files shouldn't be edited directly neither on the production
server nor the development server, but at each designer/developers own
workstation, and then updated at the development server through CVS (it
might make sense to make a script at the development server that automaticly
updates files as they are committed to the CVS, and eventually executes a
Makefile after that).

If you need anything that can't be offered through CVS, i.e. special
permissions/modes/ownerships, this might be fixed through Makefiles.
