I think people are referring to just those types of courses, many (if  
not most) of which are still teaching table-based layout and <font>  
tags galore as the way to do things.  They generally are "reasonably  
priced", but often still not worth it.  If they point people in the  
wrong direction from the start they can do more harm than good....
