Agreed - forgot to mention Codeweavers. I've heard really good things
about that product. Very neat. So far, not too many issues with
compatibility with my windows word/ppt/xls documents. yes, there are
issues, but nothing catastrophic. But for certain, you will be better
off running the real deal.
But for Travis, who would be using Dreamweaver, I think it'd be okay,
since we're just talking HTML mostly.
