Doesn't the purpose of the document and the customer drive the document's
production? Yes HTML, CGI and Javascript can do a lot, but that doesn't mean
they are the appropriate tools for the job.

hmmm, the basic skills I learned that relate to writing and that directly
affect my writing (researching, design and layout, editing, writing,
proofreading) are not computer related in the least. I consider the programs
I use as tools to help me achieve the end result. Part of my job as a
technical writer is to know what tools are best to complete the job at hand.
Sometimes I have no control over what tools I have to use.

And as someone who recently stepped out of acedemia and into industry,
sometimes sound pedagogy has little or nothing to do with learning or
needing to complete a task.
