Learning HTML 3.2 by Examples, section 1 Preface:

Why should you learn HTML?

It is possible to provide information on the Web without knowing the HTML language, since HTML can be produced by various specialized editors and converters. This document, however, was written for people who write HTML directly or at least occasionally check and modify HTML code. There are several good reasons to do so.

Writing HTML directly isn't difficult - possibly it's easier than learning to use an HTML editor or converter. Moreover, the HTML editors and converters are often limited in their capabilities, or buggy, or produce bad HTML code which does not work on different platforms.
