Myth Dreamweaver does not generate "atrocious" code. In fact, it allows you to decide how you want your code to look, so even if you never go into the code editor, you can generate HTML that looks good for your text editor compatriots.
Verdict: Fact WYSIWYG editors, including Dreamweaver, do the best they can, but it's impossible to build in design view for every permutation of browser, OS, and version available. We do the best we can, and always test our work in as many browsers as possible.
Myth Dreamweaver can produce Web pages to whatever standards you would like to use.
Verdict: Myth It's not the editor that is faster, it's the experience of the person using it. If you want to be a faster designer, learn your preferred program inside and out so that you can get the most out of it.
Half and Half It is possible to write Web pages in Dreamweaver without learning HTML, but the more HTML you learn the better your pages will be.
