Default Can't drag controls onto Design View page

I'm just starting with the book and am stumped by a problem in chapter 1 (the "Try it out: Creating Your First ASP.NET Web Page"). I followed the directions exactly for steps 1 - 7. The only difference is I changed where the project folder is stored but that should not matter. On Step 8, when I try to drag TextBox and Button controls into the div area, the mouse pointer turns into a negation symbol (a circle with a slash through it) and I cannot drag & drop the controls. I'm definitely in Design View.

This must be something simple that I'm overlooking. Can someone help me out?

I'm using Visual Studio 10 Ultimate on a Windows XP system.
