Most webpages can be built in 100-150 lines of HTML.  I'm not talking 
simple things, I'm talking full e-commerce pages with shopping carts and 
so forth.
The end result will be more than that, but in terms of what you are 
working with on a particlaur asp file, is really sounds like your 
missing out on content/presentation splits.

DW is probably adding to your code bloat in the first place.

Learn to use linked external library's, includes for common elements 
like headers, navs, and footers..., use functions and calls in your 
coding instead of in-line scripting, and so forth, and you'll find your 
code getting better, your sites development time decreasing, and your 
page loads getting faster.
