Is it ok to build a whole site in Dreamweaver 8, using layers ?
It seems an quicker way to do it, but does it affect how the search engines see it ?

It's a widespread opinion that removing bloated code (tables for design), will make a site better for search engines if you combine it with semantic tags, ie: use <Hx> for headlines,

for paragraphs etc.

I have heard the same thing, It also makes it better for accessibility. The new accessibility standards don't want tables to be used for site layout.

In place of 'layer' using DIV is better. you can set up in DW8 pref
