When I'm working in dreamweaver, in the css panel there are often lines through the different css. I don't understand what that means. Does it mean it's not needed or used incorrectly, or just telling you somethine else.

Properties irrelevant to a selection are displayed with a red strike-through line

What do you mean irrelevant? Does it mean you don't need them?

Yes but I guess it sounds kind of rude. It just doesn't apply to that item you are working on. If you take them out the style won't change.

You mean the style they are applied to won't change but maybe something else will. I have a style that has a border, inside I have a table. When I put my cursor on the table the lines go throught he border styles. If I take out the border style the table isn't effected but the border around the outside of the page goes away.  Does that sound correct?

Yes it does. So it just means it doesn't apply to that section.
