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 market (Macromedia), who were then bought by a bigger company (Adobe). HomeSite was a well-developed product before it ever came under the same umbrella as DreamWeaver.
If the question had been how to convert FrameMaker files to HTML, Mif2go would clearly have been the right answer because it understands the FrameMaker document and book paradigm. If you're starting with plain text that you just need to tag, HomeSite is an excellent choice. But it is hardly "a scaled-down version of DreamWeaver". My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

Macromedia Homesite (a scaled-down version of DreamWeaver) is $30 for the upgrade and $99 for the complete package. I have an old version of it so my company went for the $30 solution rather than the $300 one. I use DreamWeaver to design my small business website (www.sammyshemp.com) 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. Thanks, Gillian
