Dreamweaver 8 or CS3?


Do you think it's OK to still use Dreamweaver 8 or is it better to use
CS3 because of more up-to-date features?

I think it's better to learn HTML & CSS. Then you're not limited by the
feature set of either one. You can use whatever tool you like, and just
switch into its "code view" if you want to do something it doesn't provide
a GUI for.

Sherm is correct; however, to answer your question directly, unless you need
new features provided by CS3, there's no reason to change.

If you are not interested in SEO, then CS3 is a consideration. After
looking over the new features for DW 9, I was completely unimpressed.
It looks like a program designed for people who need to create sites
with a lot of bells and whistles based on user script (Rails,
Javascript, etc.).

When building dynamic sites my preference is for DW, but when working
with a CSS site (that is not dynamic) my preference is with GoLive.
The current version of GoLive is much better with CSS than DW. Also,
the smart objects is a major plus. Basically you can place .ai
and .psd files in the smart object folder. When you select the object
you can then create an image in the needed format (jpeg, gif, etc.).
When the original file is changed the spawned image is also updated.
There are other features which help you hunt down CSS issues that can
take untold time in DW. IMHO GoLive is vastly under appreciated.

Last time I looked, GoLive generated some incredibly awful HTML, worse
even than FrontPage. Has it improved any in the latest release?
