Fireworks as a complete WYSIWYG Solution?

Why not make Fireworks a complete WYSIWYG website publisher?

It does a decent job of making the pages. It can export in CSS. with just a little work, Fireworks could also upload the finished sites and eliminate the need for Dreamweaver for most static sites.

Sometimes I just need to bang out a simple, static site and Fireworks would be perfect if it had just a few more abilities that we now MUST use Dreamweaver for.

So why isn;t Fireworks a complete WYSIWYG website publisher? Is it destined for the rubbish heap? Why keep it dependent on something as archaic as Dreamweaver for simple sites?

Adobe don’t come here any more – why not ask the question in the Adobe web forums?

It is a valid enough question as Dreamweaver is a bit much for those who just want their own home site. On the other hand I would be completely lost without Dreamweaver and the ability to alter in the code when necessary – but I use it all day every day and still haven’t used the half of it.

A second, cheaper WYSIWYG might be valid and I do prefer Fireworks to Photoshop for a lot of web related work although I, personally, never us it to write web pages.
