Hitting some of your points:

Wrapping is good; it makes the site usable by people with many approaches to web reading (and different browsers). However, much of that information could be placed within tables, which would keep the sections clear.

On the other hand, I agree with Bo — some of the side heads could be more effective and easier to manage as stacked heads.

For a controlled-access update process, set up a drafts folder on the server and place the temporary site in there (leaving the other one still alive). Supply that exact URL to the editors and they can view it online from anywhere. It could be password-protected, though I think having a keep-away statement in the .htaccess file would work as well. (I would not allow any but one person to actually change any text or code, however.)

As for layout, you may find you are solving some of those issues as you work out the page.

Are you willing to get a book? Although it is aging, Elizabeth Castro’s HTML for the World Wide Web (edition 5) is excellent for learning, almost a cookbook.
