hmm? developer as user?
totally, the tools for developing end-user experiences need to be
sophisticated and create efficiencies. I mean this is what VB did
years before HTML was out there. Its important to note that economy is
an important issue in all this.
I think the though that the early advantages of HTML for developers
have waned in recent years mainly b/c HTML isn't really HTML anymore.
I mean how many of us really code ONLY in HTML. xHTML is pretty darn
XSLt etc. into the mix, it is now becoming a full on development
environment that requires the same theoretical abilities as
programming Java, Python, PHP, etc.
I think we have really lost the economies of scale here, no?
