    Ok, so i've been brushing up on CSS at w3schools.com, and have learned alot
    about CSS positioning and so forth. So I went into Dreamweaver and started
    doing some of the sameple codes that w3schools had to offer and I script it
    all out in the code side of dreamweaver. Then when I click into WYSIWYG
    side of things, it looks like it's all just laid out in layers. Are
    dreamweaver layers the same thing as CSS? I know CSS has alot more to it,
    but do dreamweaver layers use the same attributes as css positioning?
    Thanks for any responses.
