I agree. Learn HTML code. It is quite easy. You just need a list of tags.
I have yet to see any benefit in using anything other than a text editor (or
maybe a word processor if you want to do spell checks) for writing HTML.
I would be interested to hear if anyone esle has found any true benefits in
using an HTML editor.
(I tried HotDog and found the help file genuinely informative.)
