Is dreamweaver marketed as a product for experts only?

If not, then the fact that a trained user can get it to produce something
standards-compliant is scarcely relevant.  It should produce good markup
by default, and require additional effort on the part of the user to
do otherwise (if indeed it permits that at all).

What about the naive user with no technical knowledge?  Are they warned
that it is an unsuitable product?  Or are they misled?
