The answer is to throw it at the wall and see if it sticks.
The question is not one of intrinsic personal worth, but of
market value. The simplest method is to call up one of the more
active placement agencies (head-hunters) in your area and see what they
can offer you. With HTML being as hot as it is, you should have no trouble
getting interviews, and will probably garner job offers as well.

There's nothing like having two or three offer letters to clarify
one's thinking about what one's job title, responsibilities, and salary
should be. One's current employer tends to find them equally
