That's very good, actually.

Unfortunately, that's an exception. The typical web development flow is  
like this: many web designers I know in local companies do the layouts in  
Photoshop and they also make the (poor) HTML+CSS code.

In my case, I don't do any design at all. Marius (my twin brother) does  
all the design. As you said, he has been told many times what's generally  
possible with CSS and HTML. Even in that case, he sometimes pushes the  
limits. :)

I believe this the better web development workflow: some guys do the  
design, and the web programmers slice the layout, make the HTML+CSS code,  
PHP, whatever. The important requirement is that each and every single  
person does his/her own job as good as possible.
