Start with learning raw HTML/CSS. There are many guides on the interwebs, many books (O'Reilly is the best for tech books, ime), etc. If you dont' know the building blocks, how are you going to know when Dreamweaver fucks something up (which it does all-too-often), and how will you fix it?

I'll agree with you for the most part. Something like Dreamweaver allows you to graphically design something and then you can look at the code it generates. He does have some HTML knowledge so that might be good for recalling things. You can also just cut code and then preview what you've done. Then you can go back change the code and then preview that to see what effect the change has. It also keeps track of things so when you upload all of it to the server links and things like that don't get broken. Well in theory at least. LOL. It sure beats the hell out manually doing everything to keep it all linked and working not to mention straight FTP can be a pain in the ass.
