While I agree wholeheartedly with the idealogy, I just can’t live up to it.

I believe you should pick the that gives you the most freedom in a sense that you can try out stuff. That’s why I always sketch before I dive into Photoshop, because on paper there’s nothing between my vision and what I put on my canvas. Photoshop makes the gap a little bigger. But HTML/CSS just makes that gap too wide.

The reason this workflow fits Andy Clarke or Meagan Fisher is because these people are very quick and flexible with HTML/CSS. But even then that’s not a garantee, because if Jeff Croft feels his visuals are stiffled when he codes in CSS, who then is going to step up the boundaries. I’m afraid this method will produce flat and dull looking website for most of us.

HTML/CSS workflow would cripple my inventiveness and visuals, but if it doesn’t for you than go ahead and say goodby to Photoshop.
