The ideas are POST-conceived; based on personal experience, observation and discussions (such as this one) in which advocates of so-called WYSIWYG consistently FAIL to provide ANY evidence that would counter those ideas
I am NOT advocating the use of "so-called" WYSYWYG. I am merely defending it against your claims, which are totally wrong. I have told you that I or anyone can produce 100% valid code in DW. This is a known fact that does not have to be proven. Why must you imply that I am lying?
DW actually includes validation tools and assistance that are not available in your simple text editors. DW also include a text editor that is as capable as any of the others. You have confirmed that you do not know how to use DW properly but that's fine. I appreciate that it can be a complex tool. You stick to your simple text editor and I'll stick to DW. You'll be OK and so will I.
