Macromedia Dreamweaver is an HTML editor developed by Macromedia. It was originally targeted at professional web designers and offers an editing system that combines both the productivity of WYSIWYG design with the control of HTML code editing mode. This combination was quite unique in late 1990s and helped Dreamweaver to a widespread adoption. It is currently available for Mac and Windows and holds about 80% of the professional HTML editor market. Dreamweaver is the editor of choice for creating and editing web templates. The latest version is Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004. In addition to native support for Mac OS x and Windows, Dreamweaver also can run on Unix-like platforms through the use of emulation software such as an incarnation of Wine.
As a part WYSIWYG editor, Dreamweaver can hide the details of pages' HTML code from the user, making it possible for non-experts to easily create web pages and sites. Some web developers criticize this approach as producing HTML pages that are much larger than they should be, which can cause web browsers to perform poorly. This can be particularly true because the application makes it very easy to create table-based layouts. In addition, some web site developers have criticized Dreamweaver in the past for producing code that often does not comply with W3C standards.
