Default Blank Design View ???

Apologies in advance if this is a basic one, but I'm getting there...
I have completed up to page 81 with page design etc. All was working when I tested on local, remote and testing, thought I'd call it a night, saved, then come back the next morning to no luck.

The code is all in place and when I preview in browser all works fine, but when I switch to design view I get a blank index page with nothing ???

Any ideas ?

Current settings are all as per book.

TIA

Tom

What version of the book are you using?

Maybe it's better to post in the book's forum, located here: http://p2p.wrox.com/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=19

If you do post there, please specify the version of the book (MX or MX 2004). Can you also post the *entire* code for the page so we can take a look?

Sometimes Dreamweaver displays an area that appears (theoretically) next to your page. SO the entire viewport has been shift one page to the left. To have the content appear again, press Ctrl+Home, or use the scrollbars to get your page back into the viewport. Not sure if that's the problem though.....

Cheers,

Imar

The opening <html> tag is missing.

Remove the <xml> declaration, and replace it with a proper <html> tag.

HtH,
