Developers who are reliant on so-called WYSIWYGs might take pride in 'their' work... but only if they are prepared to consider their designs 'finished' without considering the beauty of accessibility (testing the display and behaviour of their content on a variety of platforms and media types) and maintainability
In the real world try selling that to a client who can see no apparent difference in the end result. We are still being elitist here.
I suppose I could propose to a client... "I can build your website so that it will look good, work perfectly well, load quickly and validate to W3C standards for £500 or I can build it in a way that does the above and also offers me self satisfaction for £1000. Which do you want?"
Guess what the answer is going to be? ;)
