    Interesting DW problem

    Ok I know that I am going to get a lot of responses saying that I should NEVER use DW but I do and I like it. I have used DW for many years now and am currently using CS6 version. I have noticed sometimes when I am building a site I get a weird designer view. However everything seems to be okay when I check it in a browser. I have included an image of what I see. The code for this site is at http://foxdenwebsolutions.com/wingsofhope/index.html. Is there something going on with my code that I don't readily see? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I would say forget about design view, as it's not a real browser anyway. The key is whether or not it works in real browsers. But of course, if you are in doubt, make sure to run the page through the HTML & CSS Validators to help find potential problems.

    To repeat what I said recently in this thread:

I eventually discovered that the problem was not my code, but DW. Every browser I tested displayed correctly, but DW did not. So I'm in full agreement with ralph.m - test in browsers and ignore DW's screen view.
