Most often while designing blogger templates I need to access my client's Edit HTML section and the only way to have such privileges is to request Admin rights from my client. After receiving Admin rights I get complete control over his posts, widgets, template and entire blog control panel. Administrator rights should be granted only when you full trust over the contributor or your partner else it is equivalent to your blog's post mortem.
