    CSS Web design
    Good morning,

    I've been trying to do CSS on my new website for a while. I've been able to design some new templates in Dreamweaver, and I've created quite a few CSS styles. The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to see my styles appear on any web interfaces. Internet Explorer and Firefox, two completely different interfaces and both won't even show my CSS designs. The whole pages appears intact and that is the only thing that doesn't show up.

    I've tried to find answers over the web about this, but it still doesn't seem to work. I've read the CSS styles folder has to be in the web directory but outside the CGI Bin, which is where it already was, and still it doesn't work.

    ANY help anyone could provide would be extremely helpful as I need to post this website soon and I'm running out of time to find the perfect solution!

    PS I know my web browsers can show CSS as I've seen it before on different websites and it looked fine.

    Firefox contains its own standard CSS that can overide a CSS on a webpage.
    Check your Firefox config. Hope this helps :o

    It might also help if you could provide links to the website you are having problems with.

    Thank you for posting your question to the Ask Me Help Desk.

    If you are able to see your CSS layout in the design view but not in the browser after you hit f12 you may want to try a couple of things.

    1.) Now that you have made the templates, (external perhaps) -- have you included a link to your CSS in your source code?

    2.) Or, check in your Dreamweaver properties panel -- you may want to pull up the drop down menu by your styles and select manage styles. Here you can make some adjustments to the styles and save them so that they should show up in the browser.

    Let me know if this gets you where you need to go. If not, we can try something else perhaps.

    This sounds like what it is to me as well. For every page you want your CSS to affect, you need to import the CSS stylesheet. There are two ways of doing this. The simpliest way is by putting the following code between your <head> tags on a page:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" media="screen"/>
    The above code assumed that your web page and the CSS file (called style.css) are both in the same folder.
