If you are new to the web development world (like I am), I think DW is a HUGE help. As long as you have a basic understanding of some HTML and CSS, their templates can be modified to fit your specific needs. I have only used CS6 (again, I'm new to this) and their templates are heavily commented so you know why the divs are there, which css rules apply to them, what to change if you want it to look different. I do agree with ralph in saying don't just go in design view. It really will introduce a few throbbing headaches if you don't use the code as well. Hope that helps.
