I think it's billable. I am being paid as a consultant--if the client
wants me to code HTML, CSS and PHP and JS or if they want me to chat
on the phone or edit their JPGs bit with my rudimentary graphics
skills or research some subject, I consider those all "consulting."
And I have done all of the above. On the clock.
