Also, GUI editors tend to produce really sloppy code. (I have yet to
see one that doesn't insist on meta tagging a credit for itself.) You
may not care about your HTML code, but other people will look at it
and pass judgments about you and your skill based upon it.

From a troubleshooting standpoint, GUI is a nightmare. I spend most
of my time using a GUI SGML program (the government's choice, not
mine). I spend a large percentage of that time trying to figure out
why my files want convert. Many times, the errors are not even
visible in the GUI.
