    Dreamweaver vs. GoLive

    Q2HU
      I have GoLive CS. Should I upgrade to CS2 version 8 or should I move over to Dreamweaver. Will GoLive go by the wayside? Is an upgrade from GoLive to Dreamweaver a likelihood. Which one is easier to use? How difficult would a conversion from GoLive to Dreamwever be? What about the learning curve? Text GoLive GoLive

          This is a user-to-user forum.

          These questions can only be definitively answered by Adobe management and
          marketing.

          What do you use Golive CS for now and what do you want to do with it in the
          future?

          Why not download the 30 day free Trial of Dreamweaver (or get it off a
          computer magazine CD) and try DW out for yourself?

            How much HTML do you know? Can you look at a page's code and tell what is
            happening?

            How much CSS do you know? Can you look at a stylesheet and figure out how
            the page is designed?

            If you can do both, then it doesn't matter whether you stay with GL or DW.

            If you can do neither, then it doesn't matter whether you stay with GL or DW
            (you'll get into the same mysterious messes in either).

            If you know GL, then stick with it. There's really nothing you can do in DW
            that you cannot do in GL.

            Probably....

                You can do that in GL, too, but you would have to hand code it. Some do. I
                don't know why! 8(

                  lol .. you can do the same thing in Notepad.

                  GoLive is a Designer's tool .. Dreamweaver is for the Designer or Developer
                  .. most of the time.
