[thelist] web development

I've met very few designers that actually write applications. So I
think you need to decide whether you are looking at the "web
application development" crowd, or the "web designer" crowd.

For the actually developers, I would imagine that almost all of them
would use an IDE like Visual Studio.NET because it has support for
things like debugging, which most design tools do not.

Designing on the other hand doesn't really involve any programming
(well, possibly some javascript if it's non-trivial). The rest is
markup, and other tools are more suitable.
