CSS Developed in Notepad

I'm taking a course in CSS. All coding is developed in Notepad. When I transfer it to Dreamweaver there's problems. The coding that belongs in a Dreamweaver webpage as opposed to a stylesheet only partially works when previewed in the browser. For example, the code developed in Notepad for a small box, centered left, with a blue border and a page background color of blue is perfect when viewed in the either IE or Mozilla. When this coding is incorporated into a Dreamweaver webpage, the background color for the page is absent. I cannot link an internal stylesheet to a Dreamweaver website, unless I use the entire access string starting with http:// and include all my subfolders -- the code for the link the professor has supplied doesn't work. Additionally, the coding in Notepad transferred to a Dreamweaver stylesheet again only partially works when it is linked up. Can somebody tell me what the problem is? The professor has no knowledge of Dreamweaver and none of the students know either.
