[snipped]

Being a graphic designer is not enough to create a good (accessible, 
interoperable, efficient for download and rendering, easy to maintain, 
future-proof, etc) website or a good (accessible, interoperable, 
efficient for download and rendering, easy to maintain, future-proof, 
etc) webpage. You need to know how CSS works. And there are some good

A software is never as intelligent, smart as its users based on their 
knowledge and expertise and will never compensate lack of knowledge and 
expertise. Otherwise, just buy a pair of Nike shoes and Wilson brand 
tennis racquet and you should become as good as NBA basketball 
professional players and tennis professional players.
