I'd disagree strongly with that, you should charge someone what the job is
worth, not what they'll pay. (only perhaps ina  charity situation you'd lower
the price)
When you walk into a shop to buy something, they don't hike up the price if
someone with nice suit comes in.

Also, regarding the hourly rate, you should also rate your quality of work.
For exampel if you're quite new to web design and you spent 1/2 your time
learning bits of HTML, then personally I wouldn't charge for that (as much)
since in theory you should already know that.

That's my thoughs on it.
