I'm a new designer and would like to visually edit the base.CSS file in Dreamwever in conjunction with the php/HTML files of my site so I can see what the changes I'm making are affecting. Is this possible and if so how? I love the pagelines platform but am trying to create a unique look so it doesn't look so much like a template. Thanx in advance. Site is currently at: www.barrysellscharleston.com/development2

Am I going about this the right way? If Dreamweaver is not the best practice for this type of editing, what are the majority using? What methods? Are you just editing the CSS on the fly and seeing what happens in the browser? If that's the case, I've got a lot more learning to do. :(

I personally think the best route is to test via Firebug:

Then add the changes in Custom Code > Custom CSS.
