Do I understand the purpose of WordPress and other CMS products correctly?

About a year ago I’ve followed a course on HTML/CSS. Whilst doing it, I was constantly wondering if all webpages were made like that – one line of code at the time. It felt tedious and boring, so once I was done I scrapped it and forgot about it.

Few weeks back I was introduced to CMS as part of a preparation for a job interview. Of them I picked WordPress and made a webpage for myself. By that time what I learned about HTML/CSS was pretty rusty, but I still managed to create a page irregardless of how crappy it was. I felt like the question was answered – WordPress and other CMS products are made to bridge the HTML/CSS gap and simplify webpage creation, whilst still being supplemented by HTML/CSS.

Would that be a correct interpretation?
