Hi Ari...

Actually, FP and DW will work well together. FP is extremely popular simply
because it's an Office product. I really would not suggest trying to fight
the power of the end-user comfort zone and attempting to retrain the mice on
a wheel you happen to like better.

Why not just create a FP web based on your DW template and leave them to it?

Proxy the web to something like http://fp.yourdomain.com and link to the
pages in this web as required.

Sounds like a lot less hassle!

Not if you're using ASP :o) Without "preserve existing HTML" ticked and
therefore ON, FP will eat your code.
