To layout your Web pages you can go down one of three routes: Tables, AP Div Layers or Cascading Style Sheets.

Converting AP Div Layers to Tables

Dreamweaver offers the flexibility of converting your AP Div layers into tables or tables into layers.

The main catch is that to convert to tables, your layers cannot overlap - if you know that you will be converting to tables at some stage, you can save yourself some trouble later by selecting Modify>Convert Tables to AP Divs and clicking on the check box next to 'Prevent Layer Overlaps'.


The second catch is that the tables created can get pretty complex.


Often they would be best created using the Smallest setting rather than Most Accurate, as you start with a simpler structure to edit!
