    Why Choose Dreamweaver Templates?

    Why waste hours and days designing a simple layout that looks good in one browser but doesn't look the same in the other or doesn't match the standards or doesn't have a good color combination? Instead, download one of the tons of beautiful templates out there and have your website running in a few minutes.

    Now you know that you can have a website with a beautiful layout in a few hours' time, thanks to all those nice people out there who give you free templates (that work on all the major browsers!) after hours of hard work. The next recommended step is to choose a template that works on Adobe's Dreamweaver. The reason behind choosing a template that is a Dreamweaver template is that the layout of the web page can be edited easily without much hassles. Not all the templates are Dreamweaver templates; however, they can be edited using dreamweaver.
