so does mine.. but you just have to open up a simple CSS layout in DW to 
see that it is pitifully inadequate for this way of working.

I'm not talking for myself.. hell, I'll use emacs if necessary, I'm talking 
about the 1000s of people who use dreamweaver on a daily basis, in their 
web teams, as solo designers charged with looking after everything for a 
company - who don't know how to alter Dreamweaver to add a doctype, who 
wouldn't know where to validate their html even if they knew it was a good 
idea. For these reasons Dreamweaver and its like, should be creating valid 
html and css _by default_ not after you have hacked at it to make it 
unrecognisable.
