I think I misled you.  The "company" is only 3 people.  Me, the other
developer, and the designer.

The designer has absolutely no programming experience.  He's an art major
from college.  It would be much quicker and more efficient for us to take
the day to translate his work in to html than it would be for him to gain
the 6+ years that me and the other developer have in HTML/CSS/Javascript.

My point was - it depends on your situation.  Our situation doesn't allow
our designer to do it for us, so we do it.  It's not a huge deal, it's about
finding what works best between the people you have.
