Learn Dreamweaver CS3 - Creating a new document

To create a new document, select File > New or press Ctrl+N/Cmd+N. This opens the New
Document dialog box, which has been considerably revamped.

The biggest change is that, in addition to a completely blank page, you can now select one of 32 CSS layouts. There are also options to change the page’s document type definition (DTD)—by default, Dreamweaver CS3 uses XHTML 1.0 Transitional—and to attach an external style sheet to the page at the time of creation.

By selecting the appropriate option from the menu on the left side of the New Document dialog box, you can also create new templates from scratch or a page from an existing template. The Page from Sample option offers a wide range of preset layouts, but I don’t recommend using them, as many of them use oldstyle presentational elements and deprecated attributes. The final option, labeled Other, contains a variety of pages for programming languages such as ActionScript, C#, and VBScript.
