You don't set margins in Dreamweaver the way you would with a word processor, if that's what you mean.   Web pages use CSS Margins.

 

And there's no such thing as TEXT BOXES.  Use headings and paragraph tags to signify descriptive content to browsers.

 

HTML:

<h1>This is heading 1</h1>

<h2>This is heading 2</h2>

<p>This is a paragraph.</p>

 

Use CSS code to style your content. Add this to your stylesheet.

 

h1 { font-size: 2.25em }

h2 { font-size: 1.75 em }

p { font-size: 1 em; margin: 2em }

When copying & pasting formatted text from other apps, use Edit > Paste Special and select the 2nd option  -- Text with structure.   DO NOT bring other formatting in from MS Word, etc... as it inserts unwanted junk code into your HTML document.
