Which version of DW are you using?
DW's rendering of CSS becomes progressively better as each new version is
That said, the only results that truly matter are what the various browsers
display and they have their differences.
Thank you john for clarifying the problem. I had a suspicion It was a DW problem and the version I use is MX2004 V7.0.1.
How good do they get and what program or version renders the pages best in your opinion?
I'm using DW8 and see the same thing sometimes.

Its most likely a combination of how you are writing the css and DW's
inability to interpret it correctly. I still use MX04 and I don't have
many rendering issues in design view when using css.
I don't know how much better the subsequent two versions are but they
can be much better than waht I see now because I'm not seeing a lot
wrong. MX04 does not impare my css to the point where I feel its not
MX8 and CS3 most like have coverd more interpretations of css code
writing than actually having improved their rendering ability.
I would use Dreamweaver and write CSS using it's wizard or using the coding intellisense it's quite good. What ever you do please stay from layers.
they can really screw up your design. they use absolute positioning, which can be a nightmare in your design.
I would use IDs and divs to do any layout in CSS. This is not a Dreamweaver problem but a CSS rule.
Keep in mind any element you give an absolute position to is broken out of the flow document and will always appear in that position absolutely.
Where this becomes a problem is in different resolutions the browser will always place an element in the absolute spot no matter what other content is on the page.
This can lead up to the covering up of other page elements so do be careful with layers and absolute positioning
