<Div> and Visual Studio?

P: n/a
IE 6 supports the DOM for the most part. Am I missing something or is
this absent from Visual Studio 2003? Does Web Matrix have it?

You see, I'm trying to get Visual Studio and Dreamweaver MX to play
together nicely. And with html tables they do. So I thought I'd try
some layers instead of tables. I created some layers in Dreamweaver
then in VS put in some ASP.NET hyperlink, but then Dreamweaver wouln't
let me edit the layer anymore. Is this just wishful thinking on my
part?

I'm a VS and ASP.NET kinda guy but I need to develop a website with a
designer who only uses Dreamweaver. I'm wondering what is going to
break what, or what works and what doesn't work in this scenario. If
anyone has some guidelines I'd like to hear them.

Thanks for your help.

Not sure what you're getting at, Bruce. Are you asking if there are classes
in ASP.Net that render divs? Try the Panel Web Server Control
(<asp:Panel...>), the HtmlGenericControl (<div runat=server...>), and of
course, the HTML div (<div>).

Good thought. I never considered controls rendering <Div> tags. But
that wasn't really was I was getting at.

In Dreamweaver you can use layers instead of tables. They can overlap
eachother and have transparency. I was looking for the same layer
functionality (or at least compatibility) in Visual Studio. In VS there
isn't even a Div item in the HTML toolbar, and no WYSIWYG layer editting
abilities. Or is this somehow implemented under the covers?

I retract what I said. The panel controls do seem to have layer
functionality. Was just playing with this. Thanks for the tip.

They do not however seem to overlap or have transparency.

Dreamweaver doesn't have anything that isn't HTML. What Dreamweaver calls
"Layers" are what Microsoft calls "Panels," (in Visual Studio.Net - in
FrontPage they are also called "Layers") and what the W3C calls "divs." divs
can overlap and have transparency, as well as a host of other attributes and
styles. What bemuses me is why these software companies rename such objects.
I can only guess that it's some kind of misguided marketing ploy.
