It kind of makes you think there is a market out there for simple 
WYSIWYG web editors.  While I have Creative Suite Premium 3, and 
therefore Dreamweaver CS3, I'd be seriously inclined to pay extra for 
something offering the functionality of PageMill/SiteMill.

Actually as I've mentioned in the past on this list, the one piece of 
software I just can't let go of is ClarisDraw.  I've tried.  Oh, how 
I've tried!  Once I buy a new system I'll no longer be able to run 
ClarisDraw (the main reason I'm running 10.4.11).  Maybe I should add 
PageMill/SiteMill to the list of stuff I run via emulation or on my 
old G4/450. :-)

Personally I'd like to see someone release a nice slick seamless 
emulation package for Mac OS X 10.6+ that allows us to run our old 
apps that no longer work.  Something better than the two emulators 
currently available.
