[thelist] DreamWeaver content locking

Not sure if this is what you mean, but as I understand it, when you
check out a file, Dreamweaver creates a second file with the same name
but a different extension -- at least in Dreamweaver CS3, the
checked-out (protected) version of filename.htm is filename.LCK.

Then I believe for anyone *else* using Dreamweaver to try to check out
filename.htm, the program first actually checks to see if filename.LCK
exists. If the program finds such a file, it reports back that "user XXX
has checked out filename.htm, do you want to override her checkout,"

I don't think Dreamweaver actually changes the protection on the
original file, so anyone using a *different* program to grab
filename.htm will be able to do so without any problem.

Subject: [thelist] DreamWeaver content locking

DreamWeaver allows areas of content to be "locked" against change by
Contribute users, using inserted comments.

Unfortunately, it's been forever since I needed to deal with this and I
can't find my old example of what they look like, nor can I find
anything useful online.

Anyone using DW who can provide the format?
