It’s all about “satisficing” ...

“It is often preferable to settle for a satisfactory solution, rather than pursue an optimal solution… The best design decision is not always the optimal design decision…”

Taken from Universal Principles of Design

(GREAT book by the way)

I’ve tested Site Grinder. It’s garbage. It doesn’t fully use the CSS to it’s capabilities and offers up many other headaches.

You have issues with the background and divs not being properly used/built.

I woudn’t recommend it to anyone not even a noob. All it will do is teach bad techniques.

Indeed, learning to hand-code is the best thing.

Don’t rely on automated solutions for this.

never use anything that auto generates code it will just hamper your learning.
