I started out web designing using Dreamweaver. I didnt know how to code
anything by hand and I didnt know the importance of doing so. My first
site about a year ago was all tables. DW renders those fine in design
view. But, then I learned about using css for layout and not just for
styling text, forms, imges, etc. DW renders all that pretty much fine.
Using advanced css for positioning/floats DW04 doesnt really do a great
job. Not a horrible job but not perfect. You just have to preview in
browser (ctrl/cmd F12). I still use DWmx04 but I mostly write my own
code and use either just code view or split it into code and design
view. Now, I'm learning how to code everything by hand. Much more
reliable this way. I like DW if I want to add a link to something I can
just highlight it in design view and add the link in the property
inspector. Easier than having to type those out every time. And, there
are other times DW design view works. It's a lot better to code
everything by hand though.
