So I was right, and her developer is either mis-informed or 
over-simplifying. He wants to migrate all his sites to Dreamweaver and 
add Contribute. He's done several static sites that look good, but they 
all have the same favicon!

The only time I'd be tempted to use Dreamweaver is to get a skin 
started. $400 for a product I don't quite trust, much less for a similar 
product I still don't trust, or learn a bit more. Easy choice!
