As a Perl coder, and a Dreamweaver/vim double-teamer, I must correct your assertion. The primary reason I use Dreamweaver is that it doesn't add crap to your HTML; the "RoundTrip HTML" bits in the ads for the product aren't just marketing hype.
It even offers an option like the HTML Tidy program to clean up Word and FrontPage HTML. For those wanting rapid dev on the HTML side, concentrating on writing Perl code, Dreamweaver works very well.
