Ok that wasn't very descriptive of me.

i suppose what i mean, when for example you put your columns down do you float them all, and if so do you have to put a value in the Clear drop down for them all.

( im going to learn css code more soon but for time being want to be able to just handle the CSS in dreamweaver) will that be possible.

cheers :)

I hardly use divs sorry, I am guessing you are talking about css and div only pages. I am of the old fashion kind and too much in love with tables still.
