I'm currently using Dreamweaver with CS5's new integration with Drupal. I have a website formatted and displaying in live view, but the formatting in live view doesn't match the formatting shown in a live browser. When I preview the site in Browserlab, it reflects the formatting I see in Dreamweaver, NOT the actual formatting shown in live browsers.
Example: I display the site in a local copy of Firefox 3.6. That formatting differs from that shown in Dreamweaver AND the Browserlab version of Firefox 3.6. I thought the whole purpose of Browserlab was to give developers an accurate rendering of a website as it would appear in different browsers? But if the formatting can differ, then Browserlab is useless as a test device.
I wondered if some of the problem might be because of formatting that I had disabled in Dreamweaver while I was experimenting, but I can find no way to ensure that all disabled formatting has been re-enabled. Does Dreamweaver remember disabled formatting from session to session? Is there a way to hunt down (or clear) disabled formatting?
I know there is a context menu to "enable all disabled in selected rule" but what about disabled rules that I can't find?
Have you considered, that actually the problem may be with your Drupal? Sounds like the classic "it's inserting paragraphs instead of soft breaks" and "it's sanitizing strings", both of which may affect placment of elemnts and thus how they render.
Not sure I get your point. I'm rendering the EXACT SAME SITE in Dreamweaver and Firefox. These are not two different versions of the same codebase. It's the exact same site on my local machine being served up by xampp. Therefore, there are no code differences.
