    Now that you've learned about Zope's features and history, it's
    time to start using it. In the next chapter you'll learn how to
    get up and running with Zope. Since Zope is free, you can download
    the latest version, and begin working immediately.

       What advantage does Zope have over
       Dreamweaver or Namo Webeditor in designing
       the website pages???

       you might use Dreamweaver to design a template, but then go through zope's web interface to write specific
       content for each individual page - at least, that's how it looks to me from what I've read so far.

       Dreamweaver  is mainly a "design tool", not a comprehensive web application framework. 

       With dreamweaver you can produce "web pages" organized in a fairly basic "web site" of a rather static
       nature. Dreamweaver is meant for visually-oriented developers who do not mind delivering sub-par bloated code
       to http clients.
       Zope allows you to build "web applications", whose components can be highly-aware "objects". Those objects
       can grealty increase your site's modularity, flexibility and extensibility using such mechanisms as
       inheritance. As an example, a sub-section object will look for its own "header" object and if it does not
       have one, it inherits its parent's.
       So if you want to build a web application which lives and breathes, is managed and edited by a group of
       people, Zope is for you.

       You can also use Zope & Dreamweaver together. Even without destroying the logic in the zope templates, since
       DW leaves them untouched. I's really useful if you collaborate with a designer (or developer, depends on
       point of view ;)) on a project at the same point of time
