I admit to not being a coder or anything near fluent in CSS. I am, however, trying to understand enough to be able to properly manipulate code Dreamweaver MX4 gives for an entire page that is a 3-column left nav setup.
My real question / problem is that I'm not sure what exactly is creating the "columns". I'd like to be able to edit this page in the future, adding a graphic, some text etc. However, whenever I go to do that, I get unexpected results. For example, I wanted to add a bit of text (a single word) to the top of the left "column". So I put my curser above existing text, entered what I wanted, and it seemed to create an area spanning the entire page width. So, I seem to have no real understanding of what is limiting the width of the columns, and I can't seem to see where or how the three columns are differentiated.
I am looking for someone who might have used this Dreamweaver example (it comes with the software), who might be able to help me along. Short of that, I'll be happy to learn a little something that might be helpful in this situation.
