but to be honest I think you problems are more likely to lie with dreamweaver than with css (if you css has validated of course). could you provide us with a link to look at your site and then we will be able to see where your problems are.

well, in that case then, a few words of friendly warning and help before you being your enterprise in ernest...

dreamweaver in design view is not your friend and will screw up your code. I promise you that. there are several members of this forum (one a guru I might add) that I know use DW in code view, therefore handcoding their sites. in other words, they are using DW as an editing tool (there are many other ones out there. (check out http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic10655.html for a review of the ones used by the forum members).

make sure you're using the correct doctype (read these for more info: http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic11242.html and http://www.alistapart.com/articles/doctype).

develop your site in Firefox. if your code works in FF, but not in IE then the most likely problem is IE and not your code and you can then find a workaround for IE. if you develop for IE I promise that you'll have problems with your code in most, if not all other browsers.

validate your code. read this for more info - http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic6533.html

if you don't and you have errors they could be due to errors in your x/html and/or css and not in your logic.

and for good measure, this is a good read too - http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/ftopic6534.html

regarding basic css tutorial...the one I started with was http://www.w3schools.com/css/default.asp

I know this is a lot to take on board, but I assure you it'll make your developmental process a lot smoother.

there's loads of other good stuff in the how to section ( http://www.csscreator.com/css-forum/forum15.html )

good luck, and post back when you've got something tangible!
