I´d like to know if anybody uses both programmes to create a site.
What I mean is , use dreamweaver 8 to design the site and (somehow) import this to visual studio 2005 and do all the code work from here, asp.net 2.0 I mean.
Would this be a practical way to work?
Does anybody out there works like this?
IF you do, how to you get around importing into Visual Studio 2005? Links to pages that could explain this? I have done several searches , google I mean, and found nada,nothing.
I am aware of the new "Microsoft EXpression Web designer", but I would rather stick to Dreamweaver and VS2005 ,if I possibly can!, for some time.
Hope somebody could give me some advice,

but have you ever received any errors while uploading them to the web. i.e changing from a html page, to a aspx page.
such as this:
The XML page cannot be displayed
Cannot view XML input using XSL style sheet. Please correct the error and then click the
Refresh button, or try again later.
A name was started with an invalid character. Error processing resource 'file:///C:/Inetpub/wwwroot/Copy of web-css-take-it...
<%@ Page Language="VB" %>
I copied the visual studio files into my web directory, and linked the html page to a aspx file.
do u have any idea whats going on?

I do remember seeing that error before.
Did you install IIS after installing microsoft .net framework 2.0 ?
If so, just go to the control panel,add/remove programs, and repair microsoft .net framework 2.0.
This should fix it, it did it for me. (Don´t ask me why, so if anybody out there knows the reason why this happens, and would like to explain ...)
Even though, and at the moment, I tend to do the designing in dreamweaver, and then copying the files into VS2005 and doing all the code work from there.

Sweet Dreamweaver ...
Hi all ... if you have VS 2005, I would say stay with it and leave your Dreamweaver behind. I was a big fan of Dreamweaver from v4.0 till it reaches v8.0. Just last year, I switched to VS2005. Yes, VS2005 looks different than Dreamweaver; however, after
using it for months, you will get use it and you will like it more and more =)

I have been trying to do the same thing. I have seen so many discussions on this topic but none that seem to be a definate answer or solution. I did run accross this...
http://www.codeproject.com/macro/VSDreamWeaverCommentFix.asp .. but I have not tried it yet. I would be interested to know if you figured it out. If I can't figure this out..my work
is going to basicall revert back to plain asp or jsp along with dreamweaver.

I too was once a DW fan and still am if I am not doing .net work. I have moved over to Expression Web for the UI and use VS for the BLL and DAL. Plays very well together.
I think that if MS were to support all the server side options that DW, plus full ASP.net they would really give Adobe a run. Go and give the trial a try, you might like it.

Note that VS 2008 has the same designer as Expression Web (actually, a bit newer version [:)])
