He told me that many developers elsewhere use programs (e.g. Dreamweaver, Frontpage, etc) that add excess code. I have copywritten everything correctly with key words and titles for optimization and layed out each page in a Word Doc. It should be fairly simple now for the developers. My friend suggests that not only is elance cheaper but that 2-3 of the developers there would do a better job than most other developers.
I would like to know others opinions on this issue of handcoding vs advanced software that may add excess code all in the light of optimization. In other Words is there significance in handcoding for optimization purposes??
