I'm using Dreamweaver 8, and I 've set up a page using CSS and divs. I want to see in Dreamweaver how they look - and I found Visual Aids. The layout of the page is a very simple 2 column layout.

The nav div I've created is 140px wide, and floating left. The main div sits beside the nav div.

In preview, this all works perfectly. My question isn't about CSS, just about how to preview it using Visual Aids. I read the tutorial on http://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/tableless_layout_dw8_04.html

Using visual aids, I just see 3 full width blocks, rather than the divs as I would expect - in a 2 column format - as per the tutorial. The files can be checked at http://www.rightintoit.com/dwcss/index.html

Again, this is just about using the Visual Aids tool in DW, which I reckon could be pretty handy for a noob.

Have I done something wrong?
