Design not showing up.

I have a page mostly html that was created in Dreamweaver, I have only been using dreamweaver for the past few weeks, mostly as a sophisticated wordpad for changing html tags.  I have an html page that as I stated was created in Dreamweaver, the page is http://www.sdmc.com/bookletmaker, all the edits were done in dreamweaver but in the code.  I would like to use Dreavweaver's abilities in the design aspect to change a bunch of the tables, I assume it is somewhat like frontpage which I used to use in the past (not a web designer as you can tell).  I do not know why but the design only shows  some lines and a yellow TD> I will attach a pic of what I see.  

So my question is how do I get this to show up in the design?  Or can it..

Thanks in advance.

Code highlighted in yellow means that tags have been entered in the wrong place, and are not allowed there.

I checked your document against the W3C's HTML Validator () and you error is that on line 290 you start a new table row using <tr>  but have not closed off a previous row using </tr>

This means DW cannot correctly interpret where one row ends and another begins.

Thanks for your help, I add the </tr> but that didn't work, then I double clicked on the yellow code in the design the error said there was a duplicate and to delete, I did and now this is what shows up.

Yes there are a few errors on this page.  The easiest thing would be to re-create the page from scratch using Dreamweaver because then your code would be XHTML transitional, which it currently is not.  

If you would prefer to continue and manually correct the errors, they can be viewed here:
