Dreamweaver 4 WebDAV has the following issues (confirmed with their
Technical Support):

- Dreamweaver searches for a WWW-Authenticate header case-sensitively (not
  compliant with HTTP RFC), and therefor misses the one sent by Zope. It
  therefor cannot do any operation for which authentication is required.

- Dreamweaver sends a malformed host header; it sends the IP number, not
  the DNS name (again, in conflict with the RFC). Also, when using a
  non-standard port (ie other than 80), it will send a non-sensical port
  number in the header (My 'www' server, port 50080 becomes 'Host:').

Also, Dreamweaver 4 has no support for XHTML, whatsoever. It will even
rewrite correct XHTML in such a way it isn't valid XML anymore.

For example: 

  <hr noshade="noshade" size="1" /> 

  <hr noshade size="1">.
