Question about DreamWeaver Design View
Can it be told to use a specific rendering engine?

So I recently got CS3 due to the large influx of people of people wanting static sites.... and my desire to do more of the designing "inhouse".

Dreamweaver has the unfortunate behavior of previewing my designs in a way that neither IE7 or FF displays it.

It is becoming quite frustrating. I expect IE and FF to differ somewhat but I would expect that DW would at least reflect the way it looks in one of these 2 browsers rather then giving me a third look at it.

It is becoming frustrating because I have to ignore design view.

Is there any way to alter DW's design view to use one of the 2 major browsers' rendering engine. It would be nice if design view rendered HTML and CSS the way IE7 or FF does... as of now my designs look broken in DW design view and look fine in IE and FF.

So I am guessing not then?

I posted this at Adobe too... also no answer.

No, does not work like that. The design view is an aproximation, you have to preview in a browser to see exact results.

(You get fast using the F12 nad/or Ctrl F12 keys for browser preview.)

....already there

Just annoying looking at it broken in front of me and it looks nice in the 4 browsers I am testing on.

Just for something that is to be managing my HTML and CSS you would think it would preview it properly.

Thanks for the post back. Hopefully this is something that they are working on.
