go to the website and when the page is on display in the browser press File - save as....
make sure the type is htm and save it locally.

Hi mchyzik,

You can do as chilternPC suggests or use DW's FTP client to download the .htm files and images and edit from there.

If you can see the source code, you should be able to see things in Design View.
oh yes - jason1178 is correct, its the code view you have and you need to put it in design view
along the top - view and click on 'design'  or my fav is ' code and design''
