You do not have to abandon your old habits with WebsMill! You can create the content and layout of your website using the graphical user interface point-and-click tools or you can use the built-in text editor to edit the XML source.
Using WebsMill you have full control over your website. Unlike some of the WYSIWYG HTML editors on the market the resulting HTML will be small without lots of superfluous bytes added that make your pages load really slooow when your customers visit your website.
When editing the XML source you can easily hide parts of the source you are not interested in. Simply select a content or layout element you want to edit and you will be able to edit the source of the element itself without other elements going into the way.
