I just switched from CS3 to CS5 and in dreamweaver I cannot see the little yellow php icons anymore.

Any idea how to make them appear? I attached a picture of how this problem makes me feel below. Hopefully this helps.

Also, I don't like how they split HTML and CSS in the properties tab. I like having both available right there. Any idea if that's possible.

Hi keks_

Go to Edit | Preferences | Invisible Elements to configure the little yellow icons to your liking.  There is no way to affect the Properties Panel, though.  The change to split the HTML/CSS was made in CS4 and they aren't going to back to the old way.

Brilliant, thanks. Now something funny happens. Some of them DO show up, some DO NOT show up. It's actually the exact same <?php ?> code, but in different locations. Any ideas?

Not sure.  Can you post the page code here and I'll load it in my copy of DW?

Dreamweaver sometimes has trouble rendering stuff in Design View if it is contained in a table and a width is not set.  The icon is there, but because the cell is rendering small, it won't display.  You can test this by adding width="100" to the td tag.

There's not really anything you can do about this aside from defining a width.

Wow you're right. The width of those rows is actually 400, but it's not explicitly declared in the tr tag. When I add the width attribute to the tr the icons show.

I would never have solved this. Thanks!
