hello everyone, im hoping someone will be able to help me. Im making a website with dreamweaver and fireworks. In dreamweaver i want to make a template with a header, the vertical fireworks nav. menu with sub menu, and a footer. I also want to make a editable content area for the main content of the pages. Im having trouble setting up the layout properly and im not sure what the best way is. I tried using tables but with a header image that is 900px long, i can only have one frame at the top. I tried using dreamweavers built in templates with a sidebar, header, footer, and the main content area, but for some reason when i add a editable region, it wont let anything be added such as tables. It gives me a error that says "you have created editable or repeat regions with the same name. The problem must be corrected before the template can be used." any help would be very much appreciated
