I count myself lucky, I actually went the PVII route, before I even tried
the FW menus, boy am I pleased I did.
My own personal preference is to use FW for graphics only, I do all the
other stuff in DW.
Without wanting to open more debates on whether FW is good at writing code,
I believe it maybe, for those who know how to use it's code writing
abilities, but looking at the plethora of FW generated sites out there, it's
obvious that the majority of users don't.
A little time spent learning PVII's menu methods, free or commercial, will
pay dividends in the end.
