But for those who are webmasters, programmers or the ones who want precision, efficiency and speed, WYSIWYG will never get you what you want or need. It never did, it doesn't do that now, and it never will.
I am a webmaster and like many thousands of others I use Dreamweaver to produce websites that get me exactly what I want. They normally validate 100% unless I am forced to use external coding or scripts. Those programmers who strive to shave another yet another microsecond of the page load time are just wasting their time. They are the only ones to whom this matters.
I am afraid that your analogy makes no sense to me but here's another one. You may as well say you cannot take a good photograph with a digital camera because all the exposure and other settings were not done manually.
No one is dissing you guys for being smart but you really need to think like the rest of the world and stop wasting your time looking for another microsecond. ;)
It's all about priorities and mine are to provide what my clients need and make a living in the process. ;)
