QuestionOpinions of WIX Pin

I'm a long-term web developer, used to building web-based applications in ASP.Net and using CSS, semantic markup, Javascript, AJAX and dynamically-generated content at the server. I'm happy hand-coding CSS and crafting HTML using classes, defining grids, floats etc. etc..

I've recently been "commandeered" by a charity I volunteer with to assist their overworked webmaster. Their website is primarily static pages, and end-users can add blog entries for specific categories. There's no server-side form processing involved. BUT the site is running on the WIX platform. It is possible to write page-specific CSS, but it won't do you much good as WIX generates its own HTML from your definitions of strips, sections, text etc - and doesn't let you add classnames or element IDs.

The webmaster reckons WIX is the bees-knees and claims that "Wix is probably the leading web platform around today. ... Wix is truly state of the art and the market leader." He also claims that it generates "responsive pages" - but the "responsiveness", such as it is, is done at the server. This means if you open a page on a mobile phone, then turn it into landscape, the page doesn't re-flow or re-structure; it just makes everything bigger to fill the width. This is NOT my understanding of "responsive design"...

I'm curious as to others' opinion of Wix, and whether I'm missing something obvious, or am way behind the web design trend.
