Dreamweaver has a new version coming out soon and has excellent CSS support
within it now. For a version (or two) it's been possible to set your
preferences to use <strong> and <em> instead of <b> and <i>...

The support for CSS-P, which I prefer to use in accessible sites, is
excellent now... Not perfect yet, but pretty awesome. :)

It may "pull you over" yet, John... ;-)
