  • Check the learning resources section, starting with the basic website video which whle not 3 columns iwll teach you how to understand css used to create a 3 column layout.

    While you can't do exactly what you want splitting ew you can use snapshot as your design view to see what IE8 will look like. That can be put on a second monitor.

  • I always have EW on my primary monitor, and Firefox full-screen on my second monitor. I preview in browser to load the page, then just leave the page open in FF. Whenever I make any major changes, I save the page and refresh the browser window to see the result. It works well for me anyway.

  • As Cheryl has already suggested, use the SnapShot Panel within xWeb to preview your page and move that over onto your second monitor. It's on the Panels menu in V4.

    Unlike a normal browser, it is refreshed everytime you save the page. It will render all page types and has modes for IE6, IE7 and IE8, plus Firefox and you can select the preview size from a list of normal resolutions.
