It made then happy, it meant i did not have to explain how to code in a
real langaue to folks just out of WordPerfect land, and it made some of
them want to dig deeper in learning html after the initail rush of "gee i
made purty thing move on screeenn.wheeee...SHUT up eccels"

It had its uses.

While I agree with the sentiment in general, i have seen real world
examples of folks growing up thru experience. In an environment like the
one a lot of office folks are in , doing HTML now has replaced doing WP.
People who were one time paper pushers are now being called on to make Web
PAges. Do we tell them all "go away until you can reach this high on the
Chucky Chese sign"? Does anyone even have that sort of authority?

The answer looks like a big NOPE, so the work a day browser will need to
be layout editors on the fly as well as page render engines.

Which in no way prohibits there being a "Bad Code not shown here" brower
from making the round.

Think of it as the webs own AOL filter:)-
