[thelist] Are Web designers a dying breed?

A couple or three years back, when I was just getting started with 
HTML, I thought WYSIWYG was going to kill any potential that web 
(front-end) design had as a viable profession... It didn't.

I'm glad that people who don't want to really INVEST in their web 
sites have somewhere to turn.  People who "want a web site" but who 
don't want to really invest in building a "web presence" can use 
templates, WYSIWYG, etc, to get immediate satisfaction.

I have maintained for some time that the most important part of 
developing a web site is the pre-coding planning process.  If you 
don't know to invest in planning your web site, you're in for trouble.

Most people need to learn this the hard way.  So let them learn.
