Of all HTML Web editing software, Dreamweaver is the application Web professionals choose who wish to create graphically stunning yet cleanly coded Web pages. The Complete Idiot's Guide(R) to Dreamweaver 5 will cover all the essential features and capabilities of the Dreamweaver package in non-technical terms. The first several chapters explain the fundamental rules of creating a Web site and the Web pages that integrate it. Dreamweaver-centric instructions on tables and design layers follow, with ample coverage on style sheets, framing as well as inputting forms and creating templates. The final content portions concentrate on more advanced types of embedded multimedia and interactivity with Flash-created graphics.
