If you have the space in your fridge the finest way to dehydrate 
herbs is in your refrigerator.  I discovered this quite by accident.
(A friend and I used to have competitions to see who could grow the 
most interesting "stuff" in her fridge -- she won but I discovered 
dried herbs.)  Put them on a paper plate and stick them in the fridge 
-- in a few days they'll be dry.  They taste much better than herbs 
dried any other way.

I dried oregano and rosemary last year both in the fridge and in the 
dehydrator and the fridge herbs are much fresher tasting.
