Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I currently use Dreamweaver templates because they are simple and they allow me to see my changes on the fly in Dreamweaver when I am editing a website's HMTL and CSS.
I want to use the PHP templating system Smarty but does anyone know if there is a WYSIWYG editor that will let me see the templates on the fly so I can edit the HTML and see the changes in the editor?
What in your opinion is the best templating system to use when creating a website? Thanks!

Not that I know of.

It really depends on the application and the developer. There are many different types of templating systems out there, using Smarty [smarty.php.net] is just one of them. For simple applications I just include the header, content, and footer and it works just as well as any other system, plus it's simple enough.

<h1><?= $title ?></h1>
...will echo the contents of the variable "title" between <h1> and </h1>.
There's really not too much of a need for a templating engine, especially if you use frameworks such as CodeIgniter.
