Big news in the web development world, I'll let the announcements speak their own volumes, and I'm sure you'll hear plenty of others on the topic. I'm going to wait an see what further info comes out before I decide what I'm going to think about the whole deal.
I guess we'll become quite tired of the "forward looking statements" statements in the near future.

Note: Reported to Macromedia already.
I was trying to help a budding extension developer that was experiencing crashes of Dreamweaver when they added a <label> tag to their file. The basic code boils down to this within an extension:
<label>Name:</label><input style="width:135px" type="text" name="name" id="name">
Turns out that there are two potential breaking points (only played with the code in a Command and only with the text box, for other extension, YMMV):
- Adding the for attribute to the label tag, would cause the issue to go away. In my brief testing, it didn't seem to matter what the for attribute value was, as long as it was there.
- If you removed the id attribute for the text field, the crashing would stop.
One thing that is weird about it all is that if you keep the id and add the for, and you set the for to have the same value as the id, and you have no value attribute, or the value is set to an empty string ( value="" ), that is, when you do not specify a value for the value attribute, then when your dialog appears some square symbol characters will be within the text field instead of the field being empty.
Quite strange indeed.
