What am I doing wrong?

The position in pixels that Indesign shows me looks wrong when putting it into dreamweaver.

Pardon me if I sound stupid in my response, but couldn't you simply alter the absolute location in dreamweaver using the code portion of it, and place it precisely where you want?

Yes, but then I would have to sit there and do it for every last element and basically be redesigning and spending hours trying to figure just that out on each page.

Well, if you need to do the same thing to a lot of pages, I suggest using Edit Pad. As far as I can tell, the spacing applied to InDesign isn't something that would transfer to Dreamweaver, unless InDesign has some kind of "send to Dreamweaver" function I'm aware of (i.e: if you're simply importing the image, then the spacing won't be there. It'll be just the image that was imported).

Im not exporting from Indesign.

I created a file in Indesign, and when making it all my measurements were set to pixels. I am taking the data I have from my file and putting it into dreamweaver manually.

In Indesign the logo is at :
x - 36px
y - 16px

In Dreamweaver I coded:
top:36px;
left:16x;

As you can see in the pics I added its not the same thing when transferred over to Dreamweaver.

Indesign does have an export to dreamweaver. I tried it once and it just took everything and made all my text into one big list. I dont know how to use it so I cant say anything else about it. Im not doing that so it doesnt make a difference I think.

My html/css memory is a bit rusty, but I would say, no offense, that if you coded it in Dreamweaver and it isn't the same, there's an error in your code somewhere that's altering it's location.

> Perhaps an unclosed tag for alignment, or some such?
> Open it in several browsers, and see how it's location looks from there.
> Try making a new website. Put JUST the logo on it, specifically stated to your location.
> Last would be to try a different doc type, and see if maybe XHTML handles spacing a bit differently.
