    I just got Dreamweaver CS4 and i'm gonna use it to create my site using HTML, question is.
    Once i get the file done, and save it to HTML, what do i do with it so that it applies as my custom template?
    I'm thinking on taking a regular template and editing that to make it MY way.

    Um, not 100% clear on what you mean. Are you making a template file for your site to use. Or making a full page using a customized template,a nd want to learn how to get it up on the web?

    find the root folder on your web host. Then as hxc said. name it index.html and drop it in that folder.

    remember that once you have more pages and get used to the way web coding works you can change stuff up. Just make sure that for now the page you want people to see first is called index.html and is not inside some other folder in your webspace.

    I just Dreamweaver today, so i'll use that to work on it.
    HTML isn't that hard anyways, it's only a markup language.
