Previewing Web Pages

The Preview view displays how the Web will appear to a visitor who is browsing with Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Because each browser can display your site differently, you will want to examine your site using several of the most popular browser formats. When you are ready to see how your page will look to visitors, click the Preview button in Page view. You can also simulate the page size of a browser as you work in Design view. If the Design view window is wider than the width you specify, gray areas appear on either side. If Design view is narrower than the width you specify, you'll need to scroll the Design view window right or left. A dotted line across the page indicates the bottom of the browser window.

Otherwise, click the Default option.
