Design Mode not displaying

Post by StevoSanDi » Fri, 11 Jan 2008 04:25:24

have some old (from the year 2000-2001) html files that would show up in the
design editor in Dreamweaver. I am now using Dreamweaver CS3 and the design
mode only shows my background. When I click on the 'split' icon to show both
design/code, the code show up perfectly but the design area only show the
background color, and a empty table with 2 talbes inside.

here is a screenshot of my workspace:

Is there any preferences that I need to change?

Here is the html for this page. If it didn't show up, please look at . These were the most
recent html files. I have to warn you, the code is old and ugly! :)

If anyone could help, you would be a life saver! Thanks!

There was another company that came into the code and added links to every
page. Damn! I spent hours and days wondering what the hell happened to this
site. So I will have to change that on every single page.

again, many thanks!
