I am trying to build a website in html5 and css3 linked to a my sql database and the pages are saved as .php
Now Are all these compatible or am i jumping ahead of time
becasuse i am in the process of writing my admin area for my site and when i view it the html5 does not seem to work although i am using dreamweaver strictly in code view and when i check the pages i have written in live view
the html5 is still working!
Does html5 not work in localhost and is there a quick fix for this so i can happily continue with my site

When you are making something to go online you must must must always always always check it in many different browsers. You can also check in information sources like caniuse dot com, but there's no substitute for your own eyeballs. "Not supported" may mean it's quietly ignored-- or it may mean visual disaster.
And then you can decide what proportion of your users are expendable.
css, unlike html, doesn't identify itself. Officially both are still Under Construction-- but my most recent visits to the CSS validator quietly assumed CSS3.

You can't do it by clicking and dragging the filenames, the way you do with ordinary html. But you can put any address into the browser's address bar. Mine is http://localhost:8888/ and that's pretty standard. I've got a default browser, but any browser will recognize an address in this form so long as your pseudo-server is already running. ("Any browser" = it even works with MSIE 5. I just tried.)

@zeusthegreat - If you are creating pages for the modern web you need to be using a modern web browser that will be able to render those html5/css3 elements you want to use and IE will never be it. Always, always use ANY other browser to test your markup first. But the multitude of problems with IE are well known, as are the hacks to fix it.
