I'd like to say "Go Gal Go", but I can't.
Hand coding is especially important when you have huge sites.  It optimises
the code. Well, at least it doesn't put garbage in it.

On huge sites, and on dynamic sites, intelligent hand coding is the way to
go. Then you get the server to dynamically generate a static page for you,
and voila.

SSI, some server side programming (PHP, ASP, whatever strikes your fancy) is
a much better solution than any wysiwyg can offer.

who had a strapless bra, or rather a strapless merry widow for a while :)
