Hey all-

I've read a lot on the ups, downs, and sideways of the different types of dreamweaver.

For someone who is new and not going to be getting into the super-advancedness of DW, what are the recommendations from you all in terms of which software to buy. One friend says go with the latest and greatest and get Dreamweaver 8, another says that there are too many problems with 8 and I should use MX or MX 2004.

The website I am helping to rebuild will use html and asp pages and has 3 subwebs to it at the moment.

thanks

Yes. I would also like to hear the opinions of anyone who has upgraded to Dreamweaver 8?

if you are using classic asp i really think there isn't much improvement from dreamweaver 4(ultradev).

the interface has changed and rendering of positional styles has improved a little.

you could save yourself a bundle especially if you don't really use the very advanced features

DW 8 is better at handling CSS & you know in MX when writing code after starting a <td> a </td> would appear and annoy the shed out of you? It doesn’t do that any more lol.

I have yet to use DW 8 only had a 10 minute shot.

dw 8 solves one of the most annoying things - you can now upload and download in the background.

that's the only difference i have really noticed and liked.

Can it now do sitewide spell checks? This is an obvious feature that has been omitted for no apparent reason.
