I don’t know… In Backbase, there is one designer guy whose main IDE is 
indeed photoshop and who makes the design for all graphics (including 
the product’s UI looks, PDF documents, the website, and their 
illustrations). However, he has basically nothing to do with HTML or CSS 
(other than having a global view of what’s possible with CSS and what’s 
not, because he’s been told so many times :)); when he’s finished a 
design, the markup is then created by web programmers who slice up the 
images and produce the code.

Maybe Backbase is an exception, I don’t know, but this seems like the 
most logical way to do it.
