M.R.P.'s original request was: "what gnu tools are their for web design? "
If your interpretations of "GNU tools" and "web design", then the answer
to the original question is likely "none". If, as you speculated, "web
design" means "creating a web page/service and make it look good",
that's going to be awfully hard to do using just UTF-8 text. To make it
look good, you're going to need something that properly renders font and
style changes as well as images. I can't think of any command line
tools that do that.
But I'm not so sure that command line tools are what M.R.P. is really
asking for. Although he/she posted to an emacs discussion group, the
reference to "GNU tools" suggests he/she's looking for something outside
of emacs. Perhaps the poster thinks gnu tools means non-proprietary.
It's also unclear whether "web design" means strictly web design, or
website building, or both. In that case, both WordPress and Drupal
would qualify, since they're licensed under the GPL and can be used to

him/her-self. And he/she's been notably silent since the first post 3

Many tools that today hold a GNU licence are
not UNIX tools historically, in the AT&T/Bell
sense, but may still relate to that tradition
or style/attitude of technology.
"Web design" is likely to mean "creating a web
page/service and make it look good" - "good",
in the eyes of certain beholders, that is.
