With so much happening so fast in terms of web technology, it seems almost archaic to learn html anymore. While I still see that it’s a HUGE advantage to learn how html code works and how to manipulate it to get your webpage to look like you want it to, there are a number of extremely good WYSIWYG html editors that are being offered for FREE.
The site MY FREE WEBSITE BUILDER, for example, is completely free with no strings attached. It has an impressive set of features that is flexible enough and powerful enough to make a very professional-looking website with ease. They even have a pretty good video to help demonstrate how it works.
So while there are certain advantages to learning html code, it’s no longer necessary for someone to build a very nice-looking website on their own.
