(2 b or not 2 b in the JSP Forum or here in the HTML forum)

Didn't see this post, but I bet it's in here somewhere..

Are people nowadays coding HTML/JSP by hand or via tool like Dreamweaver or FrontPage?

got me thinking about that question again.

Thanks.

This actually came up recently, and the consensus among the experienced developers is that they would rather die than let some WYSIWYG tool generate crappy code for them.

lol! Thank you. I figured it did. Perhaps searching on "code generator" would have worked.

Thanks again.

I code all of my JSPs by hand but if I were doing some advanced CSS development, such as div overlays, etc, then a tool would be a necessity.
