This is an opinion. I found Dreamweaver to work pretty well if all you needed to do was run record sets in the standard ways that are built in. They're reasonably effective for ASP, and if you grab a free extension or two, they even work about the same for PHP. It's ASP.NET support however was not good. I played around with it a little, and was very frustrated. I asked the instructor who'd taught us ASP and PHP sites in Dreamweaver, and he said that's typical. That's why they didn't offer Dreamweaver courses in .NET, and he told me that if I was comfortable with ASP in Dreamweaver there was no reason not to use Visual Web Developer which is a free MS download from If you're using ASP.NET, I think you'll be much happier with it.
