I've been fooling around with Dreamweaver, but i have a problem. Is there a way to set the background of the entire page, without drawing a huge table? I've been drawing individual cells but I end up with white gaps in between them. Am I being unclear?

not sure on a mac but if you press "Control + J" on the M$ version, brings up page properties ... everything you need is in there

I'm not sure about the best way to do it throught the GUI but if you switch to code view and find the <body> tag near the top (it'll probably look something like <body bgcolor="#FFFFFF"> and maybe with some more attributes inside - put a background="file.jpg" inside (so it looks like <body background="file.jpg" bgcolor="#FFFFFF">). file.jpg has to be in the same directory as the html file you're editing. You could put it in a subfolder, 'images' and change the attribute to background="images/file.jpg".

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

Goto the modify menu -> then page properties. Control J works on the XP version, apple J on the mac version.

Or define it in your CSS
Code:
body {
   background-color: #ccc;
   }
That way if you want to edit it later you will only have to do it from one place
