I've had a fair few glish templates that have been imported into DW emailed 
to me by people who don't understand why they don't work - usually they 
have accidentally added inline styles. It's all well and good saying that 
advanced users will be ok, of course they will be, but that will just 
create an even wider gulf between the standard of work of the solo designer 
trying to do it all for a company using a 'wysiwyg' and the advanced users 
or people who have the luxury of working in a team.
