Ive been out of web design for many years now and it has changed beyond recognition for me. its like I have to learn a whole new language again.
I am starting at the top, want to design a couple of responsive websites, these are quite new designs I believe, wasn't around 6 years ago, anyone know if there is a WYSIWYG editor for designing responsive websites like there is for designing normally website (dreamweaver)?

Dreamweaver CS6 is the latest version and it has some responsive design tools in there but they are not very good. Adobe is also taking DW to its subscription service so there will be no more updates. I bought it not knowing that it was going to subscription and would not recommend it. It also has serious bugs in it that Adobe have refused to fix. The included FTP program is a nightmare!

You could possibly try to find a cheap copy of DW 5.5 or another previous version and then pick up and modify a responsive template. There is a good open source template out there, which I have used to good effect ... Google YAMB. There are also plenty of premium ones too.

looking for this YAMB thing and cant find a thing. found adobe Edge Reflow, looks ok but not in production yet. this responsive design must be fairly new stuff then.
I just loaded CS6 creative suite but I never use the FTP in dreamweaver, rather use a proper stand alone one.
anyone got anything else out there for responsive design?

This is only available through subscription, which would tie you to Adobe for years. After what they did to those of us who just purchased stand alone apps I would not trust them.
