How to use Dreamweaver's WYSIWYG Design View . . .

Creating websites in Dreamweaver can be as easy as using your favorite word processing program which is one reason that Dreamweaver is the most popular program for building websites and web applications. This is the approach that the author, Nolan Hester, takes in this book. The concept behind the Visual QuickProject Guide series is to give readers clear illustrations and step-by-step instructions to complete the QuickProject without overwhelming them with a multitude of details. MacromediaR DreamweaverR is a large and powerful program but Hester does a great job of explaining how to create a webpage within Dreamweaver's WYSIWYG Design View.

After you become familiar with the workspace, Hester gets right to work on the homepage for your site. One nice feature of Dreamweaver is support for Cascading Style Sheets which is used to format webpages. By using Dreamweaver's Design View to generate this CSS code, Hester never burdens readers with the details of the raw code. Instead he gives step-by-step instructions on formatting text and page properties for the homepage using the Property Inspector and Style menus. You will find his instructions very similar to using a word program.

Next, Hester explains how easy it is to create image maps and to perform basic image editing tasks within the Dreamweaver program. You are now ready to use the Property Inspector to insert and format your images into your webpage. He then moves on to populating HTML tables with data and sorting the data. Finally, he shows how to use Dreamweaver's drag and drop feature to create internal, external, anchor and email links.

After these basics are covered, Hester discusses Dreamweaver's time-saving features. For example, he explains how to use webpage templates and reusable sections of code, called Library Items, to streamline your work. Finally, he discusses how to use the FTP features in Dreamweaver to upload and maintain your website on an external server.

Nolan Hester is a popular PeachPit author of a dozen+ books on computer subjects such as AdobeR PhotoshopR Album, MicrosoftR FrontPageR and MacromediaR DreamweaverR.
