Are you using a different browser than your boss? I have seen a website look totally different in firefox and in internet explorer. Also what exactly looks different?

When you use a WYSIWYG editor, keep in mind that What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get tends to be a misnomer. Author your document in the editor if you want, but test it in a real browser instead of the editor’s built‐in viewer. And never code for Internet Explorer first unless you want a headache trying to make it work with standards-compliant browsers.

Especially if you are using images with a Transparent background. IE will display the image with a greyish white background anyway.

We got a little bit off topic there, sorry...

I think DreamWeaver's in-program browser is Internet Explorer...I think O.o

Internet Explorer 6 supports PNG‐24 transparency but in a very cumbersome, buggy, and incompatible way that requires utilization of one of Microsoft’s proprietary DirectX filters. That Javascript simply applies the filter to all PNG images on the page in a way compatible with browsers that do support PNG‐24 images directly. Unfortunately, use of PNG transparency still has significant limitations when you want to use them as background images in Internet Explorer 6.

Fortunately, the recently released Internet Explorer 7 supports PNG‐24 alpha transparency.

I wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t support Internet Explorer 7’s rendering. It would seem rather inflexible if it doesn’t have a more standards‐compliant view. I know that Adobe GoLive allows you to view the page as rendered in various browsers, like Firefox et al. It’s out‐dated too though since Firefox (2), Internet Explorer (7), and Opera (9) have all been released since.
