    Question What Do People Think of Dreamweaver CSS Templates?

    Hi All

    What do people think of the pre-built CSS templates available in Dreamweaver?

    I have CS3, are the CSS templates much improved in CS6?

    Thanks

    It's better just to use templates you do yourself, without all the unnecessary Dw additions. WYSIWYG editors like Dw introduce a lot of unnecessary cruft.

    If you are new to the web development world (like I am), I think DW is a HUGE help. As long as you have a basic understanding of some HTML and CSS, their templates can be modified to fit your specific needs. I have only used CS6 (again, I'm new to this) and their templates are heavily commented so you know why the divs are there, which css rules apply to them, what to change if you want it to look different. I do agree with ralph in saying don't just go in design view. It really will introduce a few throbbing headaches if you don't use the code as well. Hope that helps.

    Dreamweaver templates are more or less part of the Web 1.0 world at this point.

    Most folks have switched to a CMS and either found/bought a template to use, or built their own.
