Should web professionals all be able to code?

It has long been a point of contention as to whether designers should be able to code, but what about other web professionals. Should everybody from content strategists to project managers be able to write at least basic HTML?

As part of our season of debate topics on the Boagworld podcast we are proposing the following…

This house proposes that all those involved in the creation of a website should have at least basic coding skills.

Do you agree? If so, why? If not, what is your reasoning? Let us know in the comments, but remember, sitting on the fence is not allowed. You are either for the proposal or against it.
