Dreamweaver is not reading the CSS

Hi,

Maybe someone here can help me...

My dreamweaver is not reading any CSS, when I test the site in the browser everything works great but when I'm working dreamweaver does not read the CSS...
Like the CSS menu writer on the browser works but in dreaweaver it shows the menu in bullets without the css.

This usually means that the path is incorrect. Are you working with a template that is in the templates folder? If so you need to make that the path to the css file is ../file.css or relative to the css path.

Hope that helps

Just to add to the last reply, the rendering that is used by Dreamweaver differs from your browser. As a result what you see in Dreamweaver is often not the result you will get in your browser, this is especially true when the design is CSS heavy. Sounds more like an issue with the relationship of the css file in this case but this is something else to keep in mind.
