Converting layers to tables

Converting layers to tables

Instead of using tables or Layout mode to create your layout, some web designers prefer to work with layers. Dreamweaver enables you to create your layout using layers, then (if you want) convert them into tables. For example, you might need to convert your layers to tables if you need to support browsers before version 4.0.

You can convert back and forth between layers and tables to adjust the layout and optimize page design. You cannot convert a specific table or layer on a page; you must convert layers to tables and tables to layers for an entire page.
