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.  :)
