Ok, I know nothing about Dreamweaver - but to make changes like you
mention, won't any content management system worth its salt just let you
check out the revelvant template from the database, edit it in whatever
your favourite HTML editor is, then check it back in?

Also, presumably, such a system is independant of web server platform /
software, so you're not tied down to a particular vendor either (subject
to you not using platform-specific code for the server side and instead
using perl, JSP etc.)
