HomeSite is a very nice HTML editor, but the resemblance to 
DreamWeaver is basically non-existent. HomeSite was originally
written by a newspaper copy editor in his spare time, and was
subsequently sold to a small software company that was bought
by a bigger software company (Allaire) who sold off part of their
product line to a company more involved in the web development

Mif2go is $300. Macromedia Homesite (a scaled-down version of

than the $300 one.

I use DreamWeaver to design my small business website
( so I am very familiar with it and HTML code so I
think I'll do fine with Homesite. It's for converting text files to HTML
to go in a software app, not online.
