Hi again , thanks or the last post.
I am using dreamweaver and am finding that layers are so much easier to use than tables which does not give u the freedom to move around as easy.
Do u think it would be a good idea to dsigna full site using all layers and no tables expect for form, is ther any disavantages to using layers and would u recomend , it , many thansk

If you think it's easier to work with layers (many of us do), then you should absolutely do it.

Thanks for that , I thought the easier way would cos some problems, Ihave used lynda.com as my training for DW and there was a tutorial from Guy called garrick , it was really good actually, only thing was the trainging was 11hrs long and he only told us about layers on the last chapter, tats why I thought for some reason that it was taking the easy way out, thanks for your advise, any other tips would be greatly appreciated to a newbie like me, cheers
