    So, it's been a long time since I've built a site in dreamweaver.

    I don't really know how to code either.

    But, how do you align a table to the top of the page, so there is no margin. I know you do it in css, but I don't remember how.

    Thanks, I was doing that do the table, instead of the body. Now I got it to work.

    try using a "css reset". just google it. it sets all default values of all browsers back to zero. it's very useful sometimes when you do complex layouts.

    and yep! i'm also using dw - but more for the great syntax highlighting, php integration and realtime-design-view... if you want to do eg simple php-stuff dw is one of the fastest rad-tools out there i think...

    but for teamwork and bigger projects eclipse with a few plugins and subversion is the tool of my choice

    you know, i had a family member die this summer, and at first decided i was going to do it in drupal, then i thought that would be overkill, because i was only going to have three pages and have a guestbook, a single audiofile, a candle animation-flash plug in and photogallery, so i decided to just into dreamweaver and do three static pages.....aw man! I have toyed with templates, but this the very first time i have designed it from scratch, what a nightmare. messy code, i tried like 6 audio players because i couldnt figure out why before i found one that i understood how to work, the guestbooks were all silly and ugly and didnt fit a memorial site until i found a nice flash plug in guestbook. never did get the photogallery to work so i just used a table.
    i was detemined to finish my static html site and i did, but it is messy and over coded i am sure, if i had used drupal or wordpress it would have been a snap to add a mod or plugin for comments, photos, audio and flash plug in! i say all of that because i think you should know it might become very laborious if you are not a natural geek to start from scratch, its a worth trying at least once and of course we all have to understand the basics, i dont know what your time line is like, but if you are building a full site that is more than one page you might want to take a look at cms like drupal, joomla or wordpress. (i dont use fantastico because its tricky to keep a site properly upgraded.)
    good luck!
