I am new to ASP.net. I am using Visual Web Developer 2008 Express. In the past, I had gotten used to writing html code using nothing more than notepad. This kept things nice and neat. Since trying out VWD, I have realized how important the IDE really is so I am very happy to use it. At the same time, sometimes I am drawn back to wanting to do things manually.
I would like to know if there is anyone out there that has been writing ASP.net code without the IDE and if there is a benefit to this in any way. Is everything best left to the IDE?
