What is Adobe Dreamweaver?
Dreamweaver is a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor for web designers and developers.
Dreamweaver vs. Contribute
Dreamweaver and Contribute focus on different things. Dreamweaver is primarily a design tool for intermediate to advanced web site creators. A web site can be created from scratch with Dreamweaver.
Contribute is an editing tool for non-technical end users. You really can’t “design” a page in Contribute.
That said, the two tools work well together. Dreamweaver templates can be created that prevent parts of a web page from being edited in both programs.
Note: Effectively using Dreamweaver templates requires use of Dreamweaver’s site management features.
