Is there any value in people who cannot write JavaScript?

“many still don’t see value in being skilled in CSS & HTML”

No it’s really not that. These skills are essential.

I suppose it depends on the work you are doing but when, like I am, you are working on a complex web app you not only need to be skilled in HTML and css but also JavaScript – without having the js skills you would have trouble working with the other technologies as they are all very intertwined. The separation of content, style and behaviour is a nice ideal but these days it’s hard to achieve in practise.
