Here's an example of NON-WRITERS taking on the task of developing
HTML for a WWW site.
Most of the recent HTML "generators" are so very easy to use (thanks to those
almost weekly advances in technology), that I wonder if
the importance of this skill, as listed on a writer's resume, has
somehow been lessened.
Quite a few of the recent postings to TECHWR-L have mentioned HTML
and the WWW. Just how important is this skill to the
technical writer in search of employment? IMHO, not very important

I've heard good things about Pagemill.
Also, the April 1996 issue of Internet World has a 2 page article mentioning
several others, including HOT DOG.
Let me know, please, whatever you settle on. I'm doing my pages by hand so
far. I've tried two HTML editors that were more work than doing it myself,
so I gave up.
