    I know you are using dreamweaver but I would start off with thw free Rapidweaver web program.

    Why you ask? Well I have found that the tutorial for the Rapidwaever themes the nest introduction to CSS layout I have found so far. Once you have mastered the basics of CSS you are ready to get the most out of Dreamweaver when you start using it

    Attached it the tutorial theme

    The guide can be downloaded here

    preview.weaverthemes.com/catalyst/pages/files_files/Tutorial.pdf

    RapidWeaver can be downloaded from here

    As for dreamweaver itself, the reference book by Peachpit press is good, and it is worth loggin on to the adobe exchange forums to get tips and useful add-ons to dreamweaver

    The missing manual book that kfordham281 suggested is pretty good, I saw that in Barnes and Noble one day... I glanced at it, seemed pretty direct...

    Just stay away from the "...For Dummies" books, I don't know where they find the ppl that write those things. Some of their authors just get off on these tangents and they have terrible puns... It seems like I bought a Visual Basic 2005 EE For Dummies book, that book was a disgrace to all computer hobbyists, enthusiasts, and programmers...

    I am gana agree with the missing manual book, they are produced by O'Reilly, the single largest most successful publisher in the industry I would also suggest learning at least basic (x)html and css as they will get you at of jams faster then dreamweaver...
