I am proficient at XHTML and CSS and need to start creating dynamic sites as well as CMS. I need them to be search engine optimized as well. Is there any reason why I should not start using Joomla! I would need to create my own templates most of the time because I do custom work. Is this a bad work flow idea? Can you develop in Joomla! without having the site live?

Joomla! is totally OK, you can start even faster by using some solutions like the one offered by Joomla-Builder - they generate Joomla Builds on the fly and you can select to include the components you need. I saw they have FireBoard forum, VirtueMart online shop and other addons I consider great.
