    Newish to Dreamweaver & messing up boxes

    AngelikaRH
      Well, I don't even know how to explain it properly. I've been working away on the contents of a page (even did it on line and saving it every few minutes (!) and it looked fine. Then when I closed Dreamweaver, looked on the the online page, I discovered some typos. I reopened the page in dreamweaver and bingo the boxes are (e.g. navigation line) is pushed together - there should be a gap. Maybe it's best if I let you have a look at what I mean http://www.instrengths.com/vision.htm inStrengths vision page
      Any help on how I made that mistake and how I can avoid this in futute would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you,
      Angelika.

          One night a police officer was staking out a particularly rowdy bar for possible DUI violations. At closing time, he saw a fellow stumble out of the bar, trip on the curb and try his keys on five different cars before he found his. The man sat in the front seat fumbling around with his keys for several minutes.

          Meanwhile, all the other patrons left the bar and drove off. Finally he started his engine and began to pull away. The police officer was waiting for him. As soon as he pulled onto the street, the officer stopped him, read him his rights and administered the breathalyzer test to determine his blood-alcohol content.

          The results showed a reading of 0.0.

          The puzzled officer demanded to know how that could be. The driver replied, "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

              Are you editing directly on the server? That's VERY dangerous -
              particularly for someone new to both DW and HTML.

              Your menu is invisible if javascript is disabled. This means that your page
              is not usable for those using screen assistive devices, or to search
              engines. Is that what you *really* want? This is the common symptom for
              all of the so called "all javascript menus" like the one you have used.
              There are much better ways.

              I suspect that if you change your menu, you will also change the scope of
              your question. Can you consider that change?
