Hi there,
I'm completely new to Dreamweaver MX and I've recently developed a web site using Microsoft FrontPage and I came across a few problems concerning constant screen resolution and operating the website with different web browsers (IE and Mozilla for example). I need the website to maintain a consistent screen resolution on different monitors' screen resolutions and images that appear just fine from IE are missing when opening the same page in Mozilla.
This is where the main problem sets in. I was told that Dreamwaver MX is the solution to my problems and I will have to redo the entire site using this new program. Unfortunately, I've been scratching my head for the past hour trying to complete the simplest task of moving and repositioning my images. Am I truly reduced having to move them using "H-axis=50, V-axis=150"?

Please, any assistance will be greatly appreciated at this point.

No!  Don't do that, as you'll be left scratching your head for a long time to come!

Can you give use some of your current code, and maybe we can help you improve it...at the very least, are you using tables or css positioning?  If neither, than that's definately the problem, and I think I can help...

In the meantime, checkout these tutorials & articles:

There are basically three ways to accomplish what you want.

The first and oldest is using tables to insure proper formatting.

The second is to use div tags or layers to format your page.

And the third is through style sheets.

Of the three using css can be the most versitile.  With the second, divs, you can use absolute, relative or inherited positioning of page elements.

Of course you can always use a combination of each depending on your comfort zone.

If you post a sample of your code we can provide a more direct solution.
