Just wanted to respond to the idea that Indesign users are rank amatuers as far as web design goes. Most print designers I know do web design as well, even if we're laying it out in INDD and having someone else code it. Even in doing this, we have to be aware of web standards, sizing convetions, colorspace converstions, etc. Along the way I've tried many web design programs, and I do also know how to write basic HTML and CSS code enough to recognize that which is good or sloppy. It's been many years since designers could make their livings being blissfully unaware of tags and pixels.
The one thing that keeps me well-rooted in Indesign, though, is that it's just the best design tool, period. I don't want Muse to be a light version WYSIWIG web program just because it's based on Indesign and the prospect of getting the print workers engaged. We bring a lot to the design table and I think the best case scenario is not watering down the pool of web designers but bringing new persepctives to current web asthetics and standards.
...Muse is going to get better and better regaurdless of what you want to believe....
Ignorance is tiring.
I've never said that it won't get better. I certainly hope it does get better. I certainly hope you find joy in using it. I simply tried to convey that you are confused to think that Muse is going to replace or "outshine" Dreamweaver. Adobe is marketing these programs to two different users. Adobe is not going to eliminate its professional design tools in favor of tools for casual users.
If you use InDesign to build web pages, then you are a rank amateur at web development, in the same way as if you use Microsoft Word to layout print design, you are a rank amateur at publishing. That's ok, not everything needs to be professionally designed, or coded. People can learn, by starting out with the easy and progressing to the dificult. Or they can stay with the easy. Whatever.
This whole discussion feels a tad overwrought. Muse is rubbish, and like countless similar products, it is not aimed at professional web developers. If that works for you, great.
Otherwise, don't worry about it.
