Recently, I’ve been developing a growing hatred for HTML. And XHTML. And CSS. And JavaScript. These days, I spend most of my time writing code in Java, or Perl, or writing build scripts using Ant, or doing other things along those lines. When I have to go back to the UI stuff and start hacking around to type up a ton of HTML, or worse, try to make things look right in several browsers, it makes me want to barf. I used to be a fair hand with PhotoShop, but now opening up any graphics tool just makes me grimace. I’m hoping that this is a phase.
