    Just wanted to ask in this section since all the HTML coders flock here...

    What's the best use of HTML as of today?

    iFrames for Cookie Stuffing?

    I mean, tons of WYSIWYG editors are going out... unless you're already an advanced HTML coder, I doubt you'd be able to compete with their software.

    html i would consider the simplest language out there so if you cant code that then the person has no hope, im no developer but html is just so simple , WYSIWYG editors stick in loads of coding that is not wanted, when you start looking into other languages to intergrate with html then it gets complex, i remember when i was learning css i nearly fell asleep it was so simple, planning on learning php some time soon hopefully, im a quick learner , iframes i think thats meant to be one of the much less secure ways of doing cookie stuffing, best use of html today as i see it is as it has always been , a solid framework which can be added to in order to create your web vision for others to see.

    HTML is the base language for web pages, it is how PHP and the rest tell the browser how to display the parsed pages.

    One thing that humans have over WYSIWYG programs is the ability to write far cleaner code, which, even with DSL and cable net connections, still means faster sites. Also, unlimited bandwidth is a myth, cleaner code uses less bandwidth.


    Some of us 'old school' people actually enjoy coding our white hat sites. Shocking.

    Ah, I see. But strangely, I find it easier to use HTML than a WYSIWYG editor...

    It just seems too overwhelming for some reason.

    Any more pros to manual coding?

    pro- you understand what you are doing, and can troubleshoot any issues. ALSO it is easier to steal others code, cause you understand what you are reading when you are looking at someone elses source.
