How in the world would I be better off with DW? I find HS a little better than CFE, but I find a fat crayon and construction paper better, or at very least less frustrating, than freakin' DreamWeaver. I thought I'd made that point fairly clear. I think you may be misreading me. I dig CFE; I just think it's not quite as usable as HS yet. That said, I'm gonna give CFE another shot for the remainder of this month. Is there any tool that will automate the move of my 97 code templates from the HS dat file into the CFE snippets, or is that something I'm going to have to either make or do manually? --Ferg Denny Valliant wrote: > +1 for the quickdocs, I liked that too. > > As for the rest, Ferg, you are probably better off with a tool like > DW or (maybe) HS/CFStud. > > Working sets ROCK, the snippets are real powerful, somehow > I think better than HS, but I don't know for sure. > > Viewing logs is probably more for people who develop local and > upload somewhere else, but it's real handy, if you do that. > > I don't think CFE needs converts, if you ask me.  There's plenty > to do already, and more people with the wrong mindset won't > help the flow of chi, or whatnot. > > Mostly these[1] are attempts at "heads up" to the CF users out > there, if you ask me.
