(Sin is Espanol for “without”)
Interesting lesson I learned this week:
So many GUI (Graphical User Interface) CMS’s (Content Management Systems) have allowed non-HTML smart webmasters to create websites. They know HTML code is being created but have built their websites without an ounce of HTML knowledge.
Along we come to offer our expert authors web buttons they can use to show that they are an expert author…and what do we do? We offer them the exact HTML code they will need to display and link up the image.
It’s like a deer looking into the headlights. Many of our authors have no idea what to do with the HTML code because their websites were built with copy and paste templates. ArggghH! :)
Frankly, just like Amateur Radio operators are not suppose to get licenses without knowing the outdated Morse Code, I don’t think Webmasters should be allowed to be called Webmasters without knowing at least an ounce of HTML code.
