Does Dreamweaver CS3 support the Visual Studio ASP.Net Master Pages?  Specifically can I utilize Visual studio for creating the code / basic pages & master page template and utilize Dreamweaver for the graphical / html design/editing?

I am currently utilizing Dreamweaver MX 2004 and it does not display these pages properly but would upgrade if this was a feature of CS3.

No, Dreamweaver CS3 doesn't support master pages the way Visual Studio does.
You can open up content pages and edit the html.
But if you try to open a *.master page, it only shows codeview and not design view.

I use DreamCS3 for design also...but usually just design in it, and then paste to VS.
If I need to make modifications, I usually create a new temporary html page in Dream and then copy/paste the html from the *.master page into the temp html file in Dream, then copy/paste back into VS when I'm done.

It's a pain, but VS is such a poor design tool and Dreamweaver is a poor ASP.Net IDE (as I'm sure you realize)

If you open a content page do you see any of the master page content?  i.e. banner navigation etc.. that is placed on the master page.

There is a solution to the problem. I don't know if it works with older versions, but it works at least in Dreamweaver CS5:

Open MMDocumentTypes.xml. It sis located under "...Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Dreamweaver CS5\Configuration\DocumentTypes". Add "master" to the document type APS.NET_VB and ASP.NET_CSharp.

<documenttype id="ASP.NET_VB" servermodel="ASP.NET VB" internaltype="Dynamic" winfileextension="aspx,ascx,asmx,master" macfileextension="aspx,ascx" file="Default_vb.aspx" writebyteordermark="true" newdocumentname="WebForm" mimetype="text/html">

<documenttype id="ASP.NET_CSharp" servermodel="ASP.NET C#" internaltype="Dynamic" winfileextension="aspx,ascx,asmx,master" macfileextension="aspx,ascx" file="Default_cs.aspx" writebyteordermark="true" newdocumentname="WebForm" mimetype="text/html">

It works like a charm.
