Dreamweaver 8, the last version marketed by Macromedia
Adobe Dreamweaver is a proprietary web development application developed by Adobe Systems. Dreamweaver was originally developed by Macromedia in 1997, and was maintained by them until Macromedia was acquired by Adobe Systems in 2005.
Adobe Dreamweaver is available for both Mac and Windows operating systems.
Dreamweaver, like other HTML editors, edits files locally then uploads them to the remote web server using FTP, SFTP, or WebDAV. Dreamweaver CS4 now supports the Subversion (SVN) version control system.
Syntax highlighting 
As of version 5, Dreamweaver supports syntax highlighting for the following languages out of the box:
Support for ASP.NET and JavaServer Pages was dropped as of version CS4. 
It is also possible for users to add their own language syntax highlighting. In addition, code completion is available for many of these languages.
Internationalization and localization 
Language availability 
Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 is available in the following languages: Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese Simplified, Chinese Traditional, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean (Windows only), Polish, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
Specific features for Arabic and Hebrew languages 
The older Adobe Dreamweaver CS3 also features a Middle Eastern version that allows typing Arabic, Persian or Hebrew text (written from right to left) within the code view. Whether the text is fully Middle Eastern (written from right to left) or includes both English and Middle Eastern text (written left to right and right to left), it will be displayed properly.
