Here is the main value of Dreamweaver (whichever version): You connect to the database, select a table/query/stored proc/whatever, then the app generates code for you (in ASP/ASP.NET/PHP/JSP/WhateverSP. I don't see NVU doing anything on that front. So far, it can be compared to FrontPage, but that's it.

To speak of it as a DreamWeaver replacement is about as poignant as talking about Notepad as Dreamweaver substitute.
