Did you upload it?
The server doesn't know how to handle a dwt file. Why are you linking to a template file anyway?
1. The template folder uploaded, I see the file in a remote view.
2. My home page is 'index.HTML' file and I wanted to link to my next page a TEMPLATE 'LAYOUT' of my articles.
I am very very new to HTML programming. Using templates I can affect changes and updates thru parent-child relationship.
The 2 links on my HOME PAGE are: 1) LAYOUT --> template file, and 2) PROFESSIONAL --> html files
The PROFESSIONNAL link is a TEST on a HOME PAGE. The TEMPLATES FILE looks just like HTML in PROFESSIONAL link.
If I can not link TEMPLATES, then How Can Link To Them From A Home, html, Page??
OK I still don't understand your goal here. I want to be sure you understand that DW template files are not intended to be published to your web site. There are used to maintain consistency of your site and control what can be edited. If you simply want the layout you created as a dwt file to be viewed on the web, create a child page from the template and link to that.
Are you saying that after I create a parent template and several children, I have to then save these file as HTML inorder to make them seen on the web.
I am building a electronic newpaper web site.
Did I clearify my question.
I need optional/edible regions, so I can place in my custom CSS layout articles as they come in.

Yes. DW templates are used to create and maintain your child html (or dynamic type) pages. For example, if you want to make changes that impact all child pages, you would make the change to the non editable regions of their templates. These changes would then propogate to the child html pages which you would then upload to your site.
Templates (dwt) files are not intended to be published to the web, and serve no purpose on the remote server, other than possibly sharing them with others or keeping them there for backup purposed.

Again, you create the editable regions in the templates, but put the actual articles in the html pages, not the dwt's.
Thank you. When I have a template question, can I email you?
It seems that not too many people know or use templates. I say it from the responses I have had when I asked about them.
Do you know if it possible or how to do it so as to change 'DWT' to 'HTML' automatically through out the site???
My website, a newspaper, will have one page with articles (i.e, NFL, College Footbal, MLB) as an overview. And so the same artilces would be shown
in their individual categories (i.e., NFL page). I can accomplish this article distribution through parent-child relationship.
But since this is in 'dwt' extensions, I need to conert all 'dwt' to html.
