Hi :)

I am Using Dreamweaver MX to create HTML pages Front end using Dwt templates

now My Back end person who using JSP and I don't know thing about jsp

He asked me

give him 3 separate html

Header

body

Footer

how can I do effectively so I can manage my look and feel and also he can manage from his end

To allow HTML designers (that is, humans) to use their favorite HTML editing tools Dreamweaver without learning JSP, and to allow marketing people  to change the look of the site on a whim, without having to alter the database access code inside the servlet. (And vice versa -- to alter the business logic and data access without altering the user interface.)


Here is my HTML


<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
"http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<body>
<table width="100%"  border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" bgcolor="#000000">
<tr>
<td><table width="100%"  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="3">
<tr>
<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">HEADER TOP Home Abuot Buy Sell extt</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Body Text forms contant ect..</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td bgcolor="#FFFFFF">Footer</td>
</tr>
</table></td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>



Please Explain  in Detail so I can go to them and present my case

thanks

Look at  these  
http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/faq.html     
http://java.sun.com/products/jsp/overview.html 

>now My Back end person who using JSP
Is he going to use  JSF  ?
http://java.sun.com/j2ee/javaserverfaces/overview.html   
Is he going to use a framework like Struts ?

Seems to me,  it is his job to make your job easier.  
Please look at  the pages  I have posted  and talk to your JSP programmer.
Afterwards restate your question here.
I think there are many experts  that will help you sort this out.

To ask you need you should use FRAMES:

<head>
<title>Your title</title>
</head>

<frameset rows="155,*, 25" cols="100%" frameborder=0 framespacing=0>
      <frame name="Header" scrolling="no" frameborder=0 framespacing=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize="true" src="YourHeader.jsp" tabIndex=-1>
      <frame name="Body" scrolling="no" frameborder=0 framespacing=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize="true" src="YourBody.jsp" tabIndex=-1>
      <frame name="Footer" scrolling="no" frameborder=0 framespacing=0 marginwidth=0 marginheight=0 noresize="true" src="YourFooter.jsp" tabIndex=-1>
      <noframes>
            No frames supported.
      </noframes>
</frameset>

Javier I agree, using frames makes more sense than using  table cells. But coudn't the JSP person intend to  use   jsp:include  action  or the include directive   to assemble the page.

Commented:
We use JSP include for these occasions.

Commented:
Well I was just trying to make easier to asnwer what the user said about the assmble of the pieces I just don't know what to say all I use to do my applications is a Text Editor, don't know about DreamWeaber or else.

:c)
