Dreamweaver 8 Coding and CSS

I use Dreamweaver MX 2004 to maintain all my sites. I don’t think I have ever touched the WYSIWYG aspects of it, just the coding. I code raw HTML, JavaScript, CSS and PHP with it. It handles all of those well, and allows my to sync my local and server copies of the files easily. I can’t wait to see what improvements version 8 brings. But I did find a little info at Scott Fegette’s blog about the new CSS panel, and also the Coder’s Toolbar. I think I’m going to like it.

    Don’t get me wrong. I’m not avoiding the WYSIWYG part of Dreamweaver because I think it is no good. I simply can’t use it because my sites use PHP, and in most cases MySQL. So rendering a PHP page in a WYSIWYG environment without the full PHP engine just won’t work. I wouldn’t see what the pages would really look like because the PHP code won’t execute until it is up on the server. Of course, one way around this is to have PHP and MySQL set up on my OS X Apache, which I do. This allows me to use my local Mac as a test server. But that works through regular browsers, not through Dreamweaver itself.
