This is the sort of thing I've wondered about before, but
would really like to get to the bottom of.
Sometimes things seem to go a bit funny in design view -
although the page will display correctly in a browser - but can
anyone let me know if there is something not quite right somewhere,
or if it actually really matters?
As an example, I've posted some screenshots on the link
below. The only difference is that the 'footer' div has been added
to the second page. They're both fine in the browser, but as you
can see from the screenshots, the first is fine in design view, but
the second (the bottom two screenshots) it all looks wrong.
Basically is this anything to worry about?
Even if it isn't, it is a bit annoying, as from a design POV
it's good to see things as they should be!
My second question is about TD widths - in these pages I have
a wrapper div set at 780px, and in the table containing the
navigation, they navigation buttons/graphics seem to need to be one
px narrower than they actually are (54 instead of 55px etc) in
order for them to line up to the total 780px, as per the screenshot
I don't know what version of DW you are using but all
versions up to
2004 didn't handle css that well.
I believe DW8 has improved. However having said that I have
found a lot
of the time that it also has a lot to do with how you write
the css. I
can't believe version 8 can possible cover all eventualities
probably still shows the odd thing or two incorrectly.
Personally I never had much trouble with DW04. It works
pretty well with
the css I write.

Yeah it does get a bit annoying but you have to work through

I don't think this web thing is totally precise and sometimes
to 'hack' it to do the job. Usually if thing are a px out I
unless it screws the design up in too mmnay browsers.
