WYSIWYG reduces repetitive keystrokes, especially for awkward tag punctuation </> and helps prevent repetitive stress injury. It's also helpful to be able to select text and press Ctrl+B to make it bold, instead of typing <b></b>.
yes i take your point, however i use edit plus (plain text editor) and would suggest it's about knowing how to use the tools you choose to use.
with mine for instance i've set up all kinds of code snippets, auto-completes etc. which saves plenty of repetitive key strokes!
i haven't used dreamweaver since ultradev4 but the same applied to that, by tweaking it you could make it do whatever you wanted.
