do the professionals still build websites completely using html/css etc. I'm wondering because with software like dreamweaver it seems really inefficient or is script something you just have to have a familiarity with?

When I do web design projects I tend to use PHP in conjunction with HTML and CSS. There are a bunch of other languages used for random projects, but just for front end work that pretty much covers it.

Edit: Also, I hate Dreamweaver. I prefer coding by hand to programs like Dreamweaver any day.

It was the only task I would undertake...

You have to know your medium. Dreamweaver has a lot in common with Dreamtheater, in that it's for n00bs who don't know better.

i design the layout in photoshop and export as html and images and then code from there in HTML.

most pros code by hand, none of the HTML editors ever do a really good job of coding whatever you design. I do use dreamweaver occasionally, but I still have to go through all of the Dreamweaver generated script by hand to debug it.

Web Designers would use software such as Dreamweaver, etc. Web Developers would code with PHP etc.

(I hypothesize.)

I have used both but wouldn't really call myself a web designer/developer.

Dreamweaver is good, but should only be used to assist in hand-coding only. Working in design mode = fail.
