Thank you for your comment!
There's a great tutorial for what you're looking for here: http://buildinternet.com/2009/03/sliding-boxes-and-captions-with-jquery/
960gs is a grid system, which is basically a grid that you put on top of your designs in Photoshop so that you can align elements to the grid. When you align to a grid, designs typically look better :) Do a search for 'designing with grids' and you might find some useful articles.

Good luck!

Sorry for the late reply. I do use Dreamweaver for some work, mostly CSS stuff as DW has some handy helpers that make writing CSS quicker.

An issue with DW is that it doesn't color-code .ctp & .thtml files, cake's template files. There is a way to fix that, but it didn't work for me. I use Notepad++ mostly for all my coding :D

Cake is not a replacement for DW, you'll still need a good grasp on html and CSS to make everything look good.

Thanks for your comment :D
