That sounds like a great idea ;)

Visual Interdev creates a zillion lines of code for things that you can do yourself in only three or four lines. It does that to "shield you from complicated stuff like recordsets, connections, etc". However, in the end you'll end up with a big mess that is very hard to maintain by hand. Dreamweaver follows the same pattern, but less messy. You can also code ASP pages in Dreamweaver quite well without using their build-in Server Behaviors that create the code for you.

Good luck. Hope it's turning out well.
