When you open documents that contain remote URI references in Dreamweaver, it contacts a DNS server to qualify each remote URI to its IP address. With some network configurations, it can take several seconds or longer, causing Dreamweaver to become unresponsive until it receives the response from the DNS server. If the document contains one or more invalid URIs, it can take longer to receive the response from the DNS server.
