I've been asked what is better for website development in the area of CMS vs HTML and here's what I have to say.
What is HTML
HTML stands for Hypertext Markup Language. Not long after the internet was created, HTML was developed by a man named Tim Berners-Lee to enable the creating and publishing of web content. HTML works in tandom with a web browser. HTML is considered a markup language. Many other markup languages and programming languages have been developed sense the beginning of the internet, but HTML still remains the fundamental way to publish content for web browsers to read.
What is CMS
There are many more markup and programming languages one can use to developed websites today and still CMSs have remained the easiest way to maintain websites. HTML is hardly ever used by itself to create a website today because it is too limited, and not cost effective. There has been an insignificant surge in purely HTML driven website by hobbyists trying their hand in DreamWeaver. CMS technology does have limitations along with benefits. Some hobbyists make the mistake of switching to Dreamweaver and a purely HTML driven website instead of simply finding a different CMS Theme.
