For long term jobs, I'd put the emphasis on :

- creative ability (both graphical and technical). Yes, you can be
creative when coding a backend.

- ability to learn and use new technologies rather than perfect
knowledge of a few "niche" technologies. (why have a perfect knowledge
of html 4 if you'll do half of your sited using flash, xml or svg in the
future? <- I know, "unrelated" technologies)

- ability to work in a team

- concrete jobs done (<- the most important thing imho)

The rest is probably less usefull : being able to build a perfect html
table won't help that much if you can't discuss with the backend
developer. Being the best asp coder on earth won't help if the client
asks for *nix based technologies. etc ...
