    Question Dreamweaver Help

    Hi,
    I created a web layout using Photoshop and now I have it in Dreamweaver. I want to input text on the layout. I've been able to get as far as actually typing on the layout itself. However, it won't let me space words out. I hit the spacebar many times but it only moves one space, maybe two, and that's it. What am I doing wrong?
    With God all things are possible.

    Thats because you shouldn't use html markup to position your elements, instead you should use css. Adding a proper margin or padding should fix the problem.

    Any amount of spacing between individual words will only be rendered as one character space by any browser. If you need to space individual words further, it generally points to not using the correct html structure to describe the text you are inserting.
