You can use that stuff pretty easily without Dreamweaver as long as
there's some templated pages for examples of the "tags" used.

The biggest problem is that there's a lot of valid CSS, particularly
positioning-related, that either kills Contribute's ability to show
the page as it looks while editing, or precludes editing content at

Using DW to create/administer a Contribute-maintained site offers
some slight management benefits, but with a single user that's not
probably very relevant.
