Adobe Muse - Opinion

Adobe just announced the beta release of Adobe Muse, a web design tool that "eliminates" the need for designers to "code" their pages.

I know myself and others within the Chicago Web Professionals meetup have been preaching for years that designers wishing to get into/excel at web design need to learn code (i.e. HTML, CSS). With the release of this tool for code novices, I have to re-emphasize this fact. Adobe Muse, while sounding compelling, creates bloated code; unnecessary nested HTML elements, CSS class-itis, etc. Many in the web industry are bashing the tool, while only a few are touting it (see this Twitter feed for the lively discussion - http://twitter.com/#!/search/adobe%20muse­ ).

Again, if you really want to learn web design, be good at web design, take control of your craft, learn at least HTML & CSS.
