i have a questions to ask.i bumped into some tutorials called:Designing Web Sites from Photoshop to Dreamweaver
now is what recomended to layout your pages in ps and then do the rest in dw?
im not the type that is really comfortable with coding i actually know nothing about it.
i just get intimitated,cos im only a designer.i do know ps relly good,and is my field of expertise.
could this possible method be the slack way of web creation or simply just another design method.
the reason im asking is,im so confused,i start a tutorial for html bacis and css,and then the next chaper is telling me

please give me some advise.
