Very true, although learning a smattering of HTML is hard to avoid as time
goes by and the more you learn the easier it all gets, and these WYSIWYG
programs make it easy to switch from HTML code view to 'normal' view making
it easy to make changes and see the results as you go.

Down the track, when your site is live, the easiest and quickest way to
update and generally tweak your site is using the built-in HTML editors
which are found in the 'file manager' of most hosting control panels.
