That's a load of crap. I'm not going to suggest that using text
editors suits everyone, but there's NOTHING stopping a talented
designer from coding sites "by hand". It helps to ensure compliancy
with HTML/CSS and really allows the developer to become much more
familiar with the intracacies of his/her code.
Obviously, some folks prefer the ease-of-user and management
capabilities of Dreamweaver, et al, but there are others who are just
as happy with vi, cvs and ssh. Looking at your site, I don't see
anything that couldn't be rewritten in vi within a matter of hours.
I still use vi and The Gimp on my Powerbook to design sites. :)
