Compatibility Issues: Adobe GoLive6 vs Dreamweaver MX

Hello everyone, I'm hoping someone can help me.

I have a potential client who is using Adobe GoLive 6 on a Mac to do her website and she wants to do a redesign.

My question is can I help her with this if I use Dreamweaver MX on a PC?

Is Dreamweaver MX compatible with Adobe GoLive 6 and MAC vs. PC versions? I want to know if I can even bid on her project to begin with and if so, what issues I would have to be aware of when working on the project. She wants to be able to do her own maintenance and updates to her site after I come up with the redesigned layout.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Welcome to WW!

Platforms (PC vs. Mac) or software (Dreamweaver vs. GoLive) will not be a problem as long as you both understand how to use the respective products. It would be difficult to collborate on a project together, but if you are just creating something that will then be altered by somebody else then there should be no problem.

I use GoLive on a Mac, but I have always been able to take other peoples work and change it regardless of their platform or software... HTML is just text.... It's different if you have to alter graphics or Flash files...

DW has certain things like libraries, templates.. etc. that GOLive wouldn't understand and the opposite is probably true.
