This may too "lowgrade" but it's the first thing I'd check if you're new to Dreamweaver. Dreamweaver has gotten "better" but it is still not really a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) program. The distortion in the webpage may not be "real" it may simply be Dreamweaver's pathetic attempt to show you what it thinks your webpage is. Check it in the browser first and see how it looks. NEVER trust the way Dreamweaver displays your page. Every five minutes or so check the page to see what your changes are really doing. If it looks weird in the browser, let us know exactly how the browser is displaying it and we can advise from there.
Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.
