We are currently running Dreamweaver 8 and need to upgrade to the latest version of Dreamweaver for the Mac. Will files that are created on DW 8 be compatible with the current version of Dreamweaver? Are there any upgrade issues we need to be aware of? Your help is greatly appreciated.
DW 8 is too old to qualify for an upgrade. You will need to subscribe to Creative Cloud on a month-to-month or yearly plan. That's the only option now.

The simple answer is yes, your HTML & CSS files will work in any HTML editor. However a lot has changed in 10 years. Your code may need to be updated to modern web standards.
