    A web programmer uses his high level of knowledge of the web and communication systems to design programs concerned with the ways by which information are transferred between the different PCs in the web or LAN or whatever.

    A web designer takes advantages of already made designing programs i.e. Front Page, with no need to know how the web work.

    In all

    WP needs technical knowledge and no need for butty sense

    WD needs butty sense but not technical knowledge

    A designer works on layout, graphics, etc. Usually in html, css, etc. that don't have any control flow logic. Their concern is the look and feel of the site.

    A programmer works with programming languages, like PHP or Python on the server, or maybe even Javascript on the client, or both. The programmer probably knows a little or a lot of html, too, but their main job is how the site works.

    Hope that helps.
