What say you? Do you hand code or use an editor when designing/building new sites? I have typically used Dreamweaver/UltraDev and Coffecup for quick edits, but am just curious what the majority here does.

Cheers,

I do it by hand. Always. Let some POS WYSIWYG editor inject its useless, malformed XHTML into my markup poetry? No thanks.

If you're dealing in websites, then you really should know how the underlying technology works. What better way to learn HTML than to write it by hand? Once you understand the concepts of HTML (HTML is really an extremely small "language") you'll find writing it by hand is faster than using any WYSIWYG program, and you'll be better suited to deal in web development.

WYSIWYG is more of a crutch than an aid.

i dig the hand coding stuff. I still use Max's HTML Beauty at work on Windows ( but have been using Notepad++ more and more) and Quanta Plus at home on linux. I just really need the color syntax highlighting so I can keep it all sorted.

Later,
