the OP expressed a desire to "pursue a career in the digital space"
Precisely, and this involves very much more than being able to put together valid code.
Yeah... why not try?
Have you tried to do this? Do you know how difficult it is to make a living as a self employed web designer? there's a big, real world out there and I often have to create websites for people who do not even use the Internet or computers. Selling detail like that to them is impossible.
Please, do cite a so-called WYSIWYG that will do all that
Dreamweaver does this perfectly well. When was the last time you tried it?
