I created a website YEARS AGO in Frontpage.  www.christophermize.com.  I now use Dreamweaver and have been.  I need to update this site for a customer, and want to update it in Dreamweaver.  Is there an easy way to convert it?  When I open the pages in Dreamweaver, they are blank.  The html code is there, but no wysiwyg at all.  HELP PLEASE.. highest points as my client needs it done in 24-48  hrs!  

Thank you,

go to the website and when the page is on display in the browser press File - save as....

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''
