Rather than create a responsive design - i was thinking of of a separate design just for mobiles, ipads etc., ,

I have the full adobe creative web and print suite. What is the best approach to starting a new mobile site. Is there good templates out there for dreamweaver etc., that can give a headstart. Thanks. J

If you already have a web page, then you should start from that code.  Certainly all of it may not work for mobile, but structure and presentation can generally be modified to support common content. If you ae using standards and best practices for web pages, the conversion for mobile is often not a lot of work, because css is designed to adapt.

You can certainly do that, but you are creating extra work for yourself. The responsive design templates are the way to go to do cross platform for all your media delivery systems.

There are lots of resources at Adobe and elsewhere - try browsing

Within Dreamweaver itself, on the startup screen, do Create New, More, Fluid Grid Layout for a place to start with a template.

Yes you can use the shortcuts, but every implementation I have seen doing that is less than it can be and frequently is a degraded version on either the desktop or the mobile.  Depends on the quality you want.  High quality == High commitment to doing the detailed work.
