Completely agreed (although I have no silver to steal): I wasn't using
DW's "Design Pane" as my preview tool; just stating my frustration in
that the layout looks almost perfect in the Design Pane, but it
certainly doesn't look that way when I actually preview it in FF or
IE.  In fact, I only enter *HTML and CSS elements as code, even in DW.
 But being that my CSS code seems to be half-baked, that is likely a
large part of the problem with my layout.
