Yo! But I learned HTML back when the only WYSIWYG editors available were things like Front Page and Netscape 4.7, which generated really horrible code and had a ton of usability issues. But if I'd had access to a good multi-mode editor I probably would have used it. As technicoid says, going back and forth between the two modes is a good way to learn the language.

I write SQL that way, 'cause I don't code in it enough to memorize the syntax. I use the QBE interface when I need to do something complicated, but a lot of changes are too subtle to be done easily except in the raw code.

emacs (like me) or vi (not like me) or some other good all-around
text editor?

I use an inexpensive HTML editor called CoffeeCup

examples and multiple preview options, and in general produces clean
HTML. I prefer working in an editor that shows me the code. It's a
relatively painless way to learn HTML.
