I came across a posting from a year ago from Big Adventure, where he could not see anything but the background color in design view in Dreamweaver.
I have the same problem with a website I inherited from another design firm. The index page will not show in design view. All I get is the black background and a couple of dotted lines denoting the table. I have tried everything and still I can not see it, so I have to edit the code.
The problem was the same with Dreamweaver MX and with Dreamweaver 8 which I recently upgraded to. Any ideas? Thanks!
