We like writing raw HTML. Without it, our pages would be hundreds of lines (literally)
longer than they are. Every generated page on our site has been re-edited manually, some more
emphatically than others. For example, we used Dreamweaver to get our graphics into the
semblance of a circle on our
home page, but we then edited the generated code to get rid of the hundreds of extra font codes, etc. that
Dreamweaver generated. Dreamweaver rebels whenever we show indexgr.php3 to it, but we beat it
down and persuade it that it's ok.
Computer-based technologies are evolving at an exponential rate. Just when we've figured out
what a buzzword means, what one particular technology is good for, either that technology
changes or else a new, improved technology emerges. Every choice has benefits and costs.
Specifications are promises; not every emerging toolset lives up to its promises. It takes
experience with a tool to learn what it does well and what it does not do well.
We have the experience.
