I have some websites developed with DreamWeaver 8. I'd like to use another development tool that's not so expensive and that someone else might be able to understand & use so I can be relieved of webmaster responsibilities. What I want to know is: can any of the software listed above can open existing DreamWeaver developed sites and build on them?
