its a three column page with a full width top section which is often the banner im sure your course will cover that. AS for the other questions use dive insert images and text and position them using css.

DW is a tool for creating a site layout not graphics. If you want images or movies then you need different software. Photoshop etc.

I'm not talking about the flash I'm talking about the squre the flouting one that inside I put the photo and the image
I'm sure I don't need to make it like an image in Photoshop that include the box and the image and the text
Or maybe I'm wrong
I want to make under my menu 3 flouting squres that include images and text

The only css way I know of getting rounded corners and drop shadow (to make the floating effect) is with css3 and that will not work on older browsers. I still think images (with html text) are the way to go and get it cross-browser.
