Don't trust any editor preview! They all have shifty eyes and WILL
steal your silver when you turn your back on them. If you want to see
what the page looks like in a browser - use a browser. Homesite is OK,
as it does use the MSIE rendering engine. Dreamweaver internally uses
a different one (I think opera based initially but now totally
bespoke) so don't trust it (again, think of your silver, probably also
your kidneys).
