Good day, Preston.

Users use html-editors and other tools
(even put intermediate columns with "</td><td>" in MS Excel :) ),
but speach was not about that.
They can correct html-code, but don't insert or debug JavaScript.

PLB> hand-coding HTML makes little sense for non-software folk now

Often, very often folk need to create database without help of programmer.
Thus they are forced to use program-visualizer,
and often (if not always) they use browser.

Importance of understanding of html-tags by them
appears in attempt to connect browser with database.
