Prospective byer's Q's about Contribute - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

I'm a developer looking for a suitable solution to let client maintain parts of site. Contribute seems to be it, but I would like answers to a few questions: 1. Can I and client share license? 2. Client has both PC amd Mac. Can he use same license on both? 3. The site already exists and is dynamic (php). Many pages do NOT contain traditional html markup, but missing e.g. head, body and html tags (those are added by includes). Can I use Contribute anyway? 4. Can I use Contribute on ANY kind of text file, e.g. css, javascript, plain ...

    Default Prospective byer's Q's about Contribute

    I'm a developer looking for a suitable solution to let client maintain parts of
    site. Contribute seems to be it, but I would like answers to a few questions:

    1. Can I and client share license?
    2. Client has both PC amd Mac. Can he use same license on both?
    3. The site already exists and is dynamic (php). Many pages do NOT contain
    traditional html markup, but missing e.g. head, body and html tags (those are
    added by includes). Can I use Contribute anyway?
    4. Can I use Contribute on ANY kind of text file, e.g. css, javascript, plain
    php, etc?
    5. Can I make sure that docs are saved as utf-8 without BOM?

    Any other useful info I haven't even thought of asking?

    TIA

    1. Can I and client share license?
    No, you need you own license.

    2. Client has both PC amd Mac. Can he use same license on both?
    I think not:
    [url]http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_15266&sliceId=2[/url]

    3. The site already exists and is dynamic (php). Many pages do NOT contain
    traditional html markup, but missing e.g. head, body and html tags (those are
    added by includes). Can I use Contribute anyway?
    Yes you can, but the pages will show only plain html (no css included of
    course) and you maybe better not allow users to create styles, because they
    won't be saved in the head section, but in the doent itself (maybe try the
    trial version)

    4. Can I use Contribute on ANY kind of text file, e.g. css, javascript, plain
    php, etc?
    Nope, but you can edit the file in an external File editor from within
    Contribute.

    5. Can I make sure that docs are saved as utf-8 without BOM?
    I don't know ([url]http://juicystudio.com/article/utf-byte-order-mark.php[/url]), but
    when you edit files without a head section this will not be a problem I presume.
