I personally don't (I use Notetab, mainly out of habit than any good
reason), but our web people use Dreamweaver to edit their XML files.
Basically, Dreamweaver is just a pumped-up text editor, so you can use
it to hard-code anything.  Now, its WSIWYG component is not compatible
with XML, only HTML.  But if you just select "View>Code" it should work
fine.   Also, if you're doing any XML-->HTML transformation or XML
validation, Dreamweaver doesn't support those things either.
I am also unsure if Dreamweaver supports other tag libraries like
Notetab does.  Someone else on the listerv could speak to that.

Subject: using dreamweaver 8 for ead??

Has anyone ever used dreamweaver 8 for ead and xslt?  We are in the
process of recussitating a moribund archival unit and hope to get some
of our new finding aids online in ead format.  We currently have
dreamweaver 8 software for web page development and thought that it
*might* be easier to keep/produce all of our web docs with this
software.  Suggestions?  Thoughts?
