Edit Page and Design View - Macromedia Contribute Connection Administrtion

Okay this could be posted for both Dreamweaver and Contribute. Basically I was wondering if there is a way to add styles that effect the page only when the page is being viewed in Design mode in Dreamweaver and or Edit Page view in Contribute. The reason I ask is I am working on a website that has a background image fixed at the bottom of an element that has two floats in it.

    Default Edit Page and Design View

    Okay this could be posted for both Dreamweaver and Contribute. Basically I was
    wondering if there is a way to add styles that effect the page only when the
    page is being viewed in Design mode in Dreamweaver and or Edit Page view in
    Contribute.

    The reason I ask is I am working on a website that has a background image
    fixed at the bottom of an element that has two floats in it. I have set the
    parent element (div) to have a overflow: hidden so that the element will grow
    height wise as the two floated divs get more content.

    This works great until I go into design mode and then the overflow: hidden
    doesn't work and the background image of that parent element is now over behind
    the text of the floated elements (divs) because the parent element doesn't grow
    to match what is in the floated elements inside the parent.

    I hope that makes sense. I just need to be able to not display the background
    image in design mode.

    Thanks

    Okay I still would like to know if there is any specific code to target design
    mode, but I have found a solution. Instead of relying on overflow: hidden in
    CSS I added a div and cleared the floats. This worked well except for having
    to add extra markup.
