To add more to the pool of logically identical replies, I am now sure if
your site currently contains a prototype -- a (fragmented) visual overview.

Either way, as was said (I have only read the replies from Spartanicus and
Els so far):


    "Start with content, then mark that up with HTML, then
    style it with CSS and add graphics as needed."


   "Learn HTML then. It's not more difficult to learn than
   Dreamweaver, and enables you to code your pages in any 
   editor you like for the rest of your life, and have the
   advantage of understanding what you're doing. Ditch
   Dreamweaver while you still can."


  -Remember that text as graphics is evil. What if I wanted to copy and
paste your E-mail address? You could specify "alt", but there would not be
a rendered indicator of that, unless you strictly validate, in which case I
can only hope you input coherent text.

  -Do not become reliant on commercial software. Even some Open Source
software ceases to be maintained. Stick to standards instead.

  -Never be intimidated by people criticising your site. That how we all
