Hi,

I am creating a website in Dreamweaver CS5 and i was wondering if there is any way to stop Dreamweaver from putting CSS into the HTML file but rather, putting it into a CSS file which is linked to the HTML file. Please advise me what to do.

Many thanks

SPECIFY HOW TO SAVE THE STYLES
When you save a CSS layout, Dreamweaver generates all of the CSS styles to create the layout as it creates the page. You can choose to save the styles in an internal style sheet or an external one. The Layout CSS drop-down menu includes three options: Add to Head creates an internal style sheet with all of the styles saved in the Head area of the file; Create New File saves all of the styles in a new external style sheet linked to the page; and Link to Existing File lets you add the styles to an existing external style sheet.

Does that answer your question?

One way is to open your external CSS file and add the styles in Code View.   I personally prefer the code hinting and auto completion features in DW's Code View over panels any day.
