I receive an email this morning from a client I just provided Dreamweaver Training to.
Here it is:
A quick question for you…I’m wondering about the differences between using tables, layers, and floating divs (is that what you call what we used yesterday with CSS?) When would someone want to use one vs. the others? Layers seem to be the easiest way to create your layout the way you want it, but I’m wondering what the drawbacks are to that? Also wondering how you might combine two or more methods to create your layout?
When editing text within Dreamweaver, web site owners are often discover a very the large gap between lines after pressing the Enter on the Keyboard.
That keystroke is interpreted by Dreamweaver as the end of the previous paragraph and the opening of a new one. Depending on the web browser you are previewing the current page with a gap of 20 to 30 pixels appears between the two lines of text.
In its default settings, Dreamweaver will not allow you to put several blank spaces in a row when editing text in your web page.
In order to correct this situation and make your page update as easy as in a word processor you need to modify your Dreamweaver software preferences.
