We're trying to go this route too. The difficulty is weaning designers off of
Dreamweaver, or, if they want to use it, to have it work with PHP.
It'll take time, but we're slowly getting there. One of the designers wanted
something changed in the meta tags on a large site. She asked me if I could
do a search and replace or something similar. No need I said, edited the php
include file in about 20 secs, reloaded the pages and showed her that it was
done. It took a while to explain how it all worked (the idea of server side
processing being a little new) but eventually we reached that "Aha! Thats
pretty cool!" sort of space.
