Best file and folder structure for websites?

    Hi everyone

    I am new to web design and currently learning XHTML and CSS which I am finding fairly logical. I have CS4 which includes Dreamweaver but I am currently coding by hand in Notepad++ so that I can get to grips with the coding properly. My question is how do I set up the files and folder for sites I am building as I assume they will get bigger as I get more practice in.

    Thanks in advance for your help and advice.

    I have images in one file, js in another and tend to leave html loose! But then I've not built massive sites so far. If you do it logically then I would think you could do what you want!

    Well done with learning XHTML & CSS I looked at Dreamweaver and ran! Useful to know how to code even if you do go back/on to Dreamweaver.

    My standard file structure for any static site is:

    - images
    - css
    -- reset.css
    - js
    -- jquery.js

    Obviously, that is a good base, but if you are using a dynamic setup, then things have to change :)
