    Fast html forms

    Thumbslinger Level 1
      If I have a lengthy form to create, are there any fast ways to get accurate layouts instead of just dragging all elements in DW?

          Well, sure. But I'm not sure what you mean by "accurate layouts". Do you
          mean "create the form quickly", which I feel is implied by the "just
          dragging all elements", or do you mean " have the fields nicely aligned"
          which seems to be what you are asking.

          If the latter, then you can put labels into one cell of a table, and fields
          into an adjacent cell. Or you can use CSS to align all with something like
          this -

          input, select {
          display:block;
          margin:0 0 1em 215px;
          }
          label {
          clear:left;
          width:200px;
          float:left;
          text-align:right;
          margin-right:15px;
          font-weight:bold;
          display: block;
          }
