Hi! I have a simple question. When working in Dreamweaver with templates and child pages, can I override styles using the Properties window. I did this and everything looks fine. I just want to know of any potential nightmares that may be in store for me. If so, how can I work around it?

The majority of your styles should be in an external stylesheet and you ought to avoid duplicating or overriding them. The page properties box puts styles into your head tags which I'd recommend moving to external CSS.

Okay Corrosive,

I updated the CSS file. I realized there were a lot of discrepancies in the code. Thank you for your answer. It helped save me from a lot of aggravation in the future.
