Thank you for your reply. If I may ask just a wee-bit more clarification.
1. While I read that SiteAssist, CSS Sculptor are DW plugins, I was confused b/c the interface in the Demos appears to be a self-contained widget. Does a SiteAssist editor ever leave the interface and edit in native Dreamweaver? (hope I make sense)
2. I've been using DW, but have not worked w/ Templates or created a Contribute site. I have done some experimenting, and observe that it is within the DW template file (.dwt extension) that editable and non-editable sections are commented. (I realize there are editor permissions to be set in Contribute)
-- In SiteAssist, will I be editing/creating Dreamweaver(compatible) Templates (.dwt extension) that will behave like native DW templates, with regards to editable and non-editable regions?
3. I have been using Sparber's Pop Menu Magic... and breadcrumb tool, (also a DW plugin). Do you know if I will be able to use this on a SiteAssist site?
