I don't want this list to descend into wysiwyg vs. text editors and 
browser/os wars, but I couldn't let this comment slip by.

Al, dreamweaver is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get tool, and typical users 
of the product expect the way a page looks in DW is the way it will look on 
the web. Until DW can do this, and create code that complies with 
standards, most/all of DW's target audience will not be using any form of 
cutting-edge or compliant CSS. If the average DW user loaded a glish 
all-CSS template into dreamweaver and it looked terrible, they wouldn't be 
inclined to use that template.
