I'm sure there are a few scenarios for using both editors. I myself like
to use the code view most of the time, because it's easier and faster.
But I switch to the visual editor when I insert an image for the simple
and somewhat ridiculous reason that in the code view the image gets
inserted as <img src='...'> (as opposed to <img src="...">). Well, it's
