    How would you explain to someone who has no knowledge of html, doesn't understand SEO or how internet works in general (not kidding with that one) the benefits of html coding versus a "do-it-yourself" website where you drag and drop...:banghead:

    HTML coding is do-it-yourself.

    The big advantage of HTML coding...it's yours, and it will be cleaner (assuming you learn how to do it right) than the bloated messages a WYSIWYG editor will come up with.

    Other advantages...you get the joy of knowing you did it yourself. You get to talk like a nerd and somehow be cool while doing it. Annnnnnnnnnnnnd...you get to understand the <sarcasm> tag and use it whenever you want.

    Hmm. Does this person use the internet at all? Do they know what a web page is? What level of knowledge do they have?
    For example, SEO is pretty straightforward to explain to someone who has used Google or something like it before.
    And as for the hand-coding, you could always mention that it means that there's one less thing to worry about breaking (eg. the drag-and-drop tool itself).

    Cleaner, faster load times, it also creates a unique website that is the client's alone, which shows devotion to online work ethics in my opinion. I think that hard coding is the way to go.
