    CSS, Design Mode vs Live Mode vs Missing Manual




      I downloaded the trial version of DreamWeaver to see if I'd like to purchase it. To get a feeling for it, I've been using the CSS3 Missing Manual and doing the tutorials. Several times I've put code into DreamWeaver then clicked over to Live/Design Modes to see how it was coming along and what was supposed to happen wasn't visible BUT when I copy and past either the CSS or HTML into Coda, it comes out just as the book says it should. Any suggestions as to why?


      I just tried to add text shaddow using the following which works in Coda but not DreamWeaver -- and it's really frustrating.


      body{background-color:rgb(255,255,255);border: 3px solid rgb(75,75,75); box-shadow:0 0 15px 5px rgba(51,51,255,1);width:760px; margin-top:20px; margin-left:auto; margin-right:auto;padding:15px;}



      Also, when I add CSS into my webpage in DW Live Mode will show it but Design Mode will not. Is that normal? What is the use of Design Mode vs Live Mode?


      Thank you,
