    I converted my site from Photoshop to Dreamweaver and I noticed that when I add a lot of content to my content box the images get all messed up because the content box is not big enough to hold all of the content. Here are some images to show what I mean:

    Without a lot of content: http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...ormal_view.jpg

    With a lot of content: http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...ed_up_view.jpg

    Notice how all of the images are messed up in the second image. Is there a code that can make the content box into a scroll box? If not, how can I fix this? Thanks for any help.

    You need to make the various parts separate images and build them
    by using CSS. I just had an example of this for someone else that
    needed to make a box "grow" or "shrink".

    It's all about using CSS to do the layout using <div> tags.

    Dreamweaver text edit mode is great, but their WYSIWYG web page editor
    is not the best thing to use. It adds a lot of extra unnecessary coding.

    I think you just need to learn to separate the various portions of your
    "images" and put them together using CSS ... letting the content fill
    them and sizing happens automatically.
