If you want to go the production route -- building sites using HTML/CSS 
from a Photoshop file provided by a designer -- then just slicing it out 
and having Photoshop generate the code is not sufficient. This is what 
is known as being 'tool-bound'.

You can learn a lot of different things -- get a good breadth of 
knowledge -- but you should also pick a track for emphasis. Get REALLY 
good at HTML, for example.
