True. I don't deny that it *could* be possible to write a good visual
web editor. One that transcended the 'fixed-size-page, fixed-size-font,
appearance is all that matters' style of visual layout and encouraged you
to write clean, flexible, semantically-rich and maintainable pages in
simple, robust code.

However all current software is very weak in this regard. Even the best
visual tools still output crap, and are marketed at people who won't be
able to recognise what's wrong with it.

So, anyone want to help write an alternative? :-)
