Question by Paul Z: Software that converts HTML into how it should look on the web…?
I have a website and I need to make alterations. The company who created my website used HTML and PHP. When I open my pages in adobe dreamweaver (to edit them) I can only see the HTML. I need some softare that will also display the how the actual pages look like on the web.
I assumed dreamweaver done this. however, when i open the page in DW and click “design” only a blank screen is visable.

If the page is written in PHP then you need to run the page off of a webserver to process the pages.
You can setup XAMMP which in a few clicks will setup a webserver on your pc. or you can try PHPTriad 2.1.1 which “installs a php environment” on your computer with apache server under c:\apache
Read the Readme file under c:\apache
The newest version of phptriad is under a different name and now costs money so support is lacking.
