[thelist] Dreamweaver site (template?)

If the issue really is a dreamweaver template, to work with them you 
need to open dreamweaver, create a dreamweaver site, and edit the 
template in the templates folder.  That should change every page on the 
site.  Dreamweaver has a pretty good tutorial under Help that addresses 
creating sites and templates.

If you mean she changed the template file in another program, or changed 
it in dreamweaver without creating a site, then that's the problem.  The 
dreamweaver program is what goes through and adjusts all of the HTML to 
the template.  If you work outside of a dreamweaver site on a template, 
it's a dud.

If you mean she changed an actual site HTML page and nothing happened... 
it sounds like some other issue.
