Workflow, best practices, choosing the best starting point..

New to the Extension Library, veteran of table-based design and still learning CSS. I've spent the last couple of days exploring the tutorials, solutions and training that comes with the library for design extensions - Sculptor, Menu Writer, and Site Assist Pro. Also, I was never a big user of Dreamweaver templates.

So -from all this information, it's clear that there's more than a few ways do build a website using these tools - from hand coding CSS to using a preset in SAP and/or sculptor and modifying same. Now I"m in the process of deciding which to use in building a new site - and which to start with.

I have a design in Photoshop. so that's set. The actual layout doesn't match exactly any of the presets in SAP, but a few are close. Same with those in Sculptor. It seems like I can edit from either one to get the layout I want, but is it better to create the layout in Sculptor and bring it into SAP? If that's the case, should I also create the template in DW first or let SAP do that?

Other than that in general, the only other real challenge I see is that my home page has a horizontal nav, which the inside pages will have vertical.

What would you say the best workflow would be for this project? Thanks!
