Drupal uses “smart” PHP templates and CSS sheets to define what the
site will look like, as a “skin” over a defined structure of generated
HTML. Each page is rendered by the Drupal CMS at publish time, pulling
content out of a database and assembling it into HTML code which is
then sent to the browser. Depending on the modules you have installed
and how you have configured them, individual pages may appear to be
quite different from each other – but this is just an artifact of how
the system assembles the pieces, not anything you can set up like you
would a single page in Freeway. In most cases, changing the way a
particular page view renders will require you to edit many different
individual “partial” templates, each buried deeply in a structure that
would be difficult for a non-programmer to untwist.

There is a main outer page template (one only) which every page in
your site uses and inherits. Then each module (navigation,
breadcrumbs, stories, books, etc.) generate the structural HTML to
hold their own sub-page fragment of content, and apply an agreed-to
set of CSS classes and IDs to those elements. The main page template
may introduce some variation in the source order (the order in which
the page’s elements are output in the HTML sent to the browser) but
everything else about the site is managed through the CSS styles
applied to these elements.

Using Freeway to make the skin is just barely possible, but
ironically, a lot harder there than using a text editor and a good
dedicated CSS editor like CSSEdit.

Thanks for the reply, I thought this might be the case.
As for text editors I use one called coda, pretty good aswell.

Thanks again
