I also think we’re in uncharted territory right now as far as what constitutes a designer vs. a developer. I think that many people would draw the line in different places. To me, a designer MUST know HTML + CSS… they just don’t work on any functionality. Several other people would say designers need not know any of that.

Let me put it this way: I use SASS. Does that mean everyone who uses LESS is an idiot? Nope. Far from it.

Doing that and more in the browser? No, thank you.

This is a totally valid opinion and I agree that working with fonts in code is a bit cumbersome. Especially when it comes to showing clients specific examples. But for many things, I think code is easier. Changing the entire color scheme of a site or even changing the layout pretty substantially can be done in seconds or minutes with SASS.
