I recently had the pleasure of joining in on a discussion on Hand Coding versus using WYSIWYG editors, with the awesome guys from the Motley Design Crew. Jane was on the side of WYSIWYG editors while I was espousing the merits of hand coding. Whilst weighing up the pros and cons of each method, we all agreed there’s no right or wrong way to code up a site. It all comes down to what works best for you.
