    Each tool has his own purpose. Photoshop is a great graphic tool, Dreamweaver is a great web editing tool. I really don't understand what do you mean by "mock up a web site in photoshop". Photoshop creates, changes and handles images, pictures, icons... and it does that brilliantly. I doubt you can use Photoshop for web coding, but if CS4 claims that, forget about it. If a tools claims to solve too many different aims you can bet it will do that poorly for most of them. See MS Word who claims to be a web editor as well... Pathetic claim

    You use a spoon to eat the soup, a knife to cut the meat and a fork to eat that meat. I guess you would not like to switch them. Probably it is possible to cut and eat the meat with a spoon only, but I guess you won't like it, will you?

    Make your design with Photoshop and do editing the HTML document with Dreamweaver. That's the professional way so far.

    It looks like you don't know how a web page is to be done, from the graphical concept till the finite product, do you?

    It is a great tool for web design. I usually design my sites with photoshop first, then slice it up and use dreamweaver to add in content after exporting the slices.

    Adobe Fireworks is said to be a great tool. It's a lot like Photoshop, but it's geared towards web developers. Might wanna check that out if you're interested.

    With Photoshop, what I usually do is make the entire site, then splice the images, and code the css/html document myself. So yeah, it is effective.
