RE: Not a fan of WYSIWYG. The WYG part is usally bloated. I edit my pages in a text editor.

Dreamweaver isn't WYSIWYG, I don't believe any html editor can be due to the nature of the medium. Dreamweaver will create bloated code if you don't know how to code HTML and CSS. Dreamweaver allows a decent coder to be more efficient, and more productive.

I think there will always be die hard coders against Dreamweaver, I say give it a go for a month, see if it can speed your daily tasks up.

Well said Dooza
