Product Description

From Amazon

This comprehensive guide to Macromedia Dreamweaver 2 for Mac and Windows serves as both an introductory aid for beginners and a useful reference tool for more experienced users. Lowery does it all: he explains features and technologies fully, throws in lots of usage tips and cross-references, and offers screen shots and step-by-step projects.

Lowery begins by explaining Dreamweaver, the current HTML standards, and new features such as dynamic styles and JavaScript behaviors. He provides a tour of the interface and helps you set your preferences, starting you off in the planning and creation of your first site. Later he goes into more detail about HTML, showing how to use Common Gateway Interface (CGI) programs, plug-ins, ActiveX, Java applets and scripts, and VBScript. (DHTML gets its own section too.) There's a series of explanations on specific Dreamweaver capabilities, from creating objects to customizing behaviors and tags.

General interest Internet topics get their due, and the book covers multimedia elements, including how to add video, audio, and Shockwave movies to your Web page. For larger-scale Web sites, the sections on Cascading Style Sheets and XML will be useful, and information on dynamic databases and e-commerce issues wrap the book up nicely.

The appendices offer primers on the HTML editors BBEdit and HomeSite--advanced HTML editors for Mac and Windows users (respectively)--and on Dreamweaver Attain, a companion Dreamweaver program that helps you create instructional Web sites. The companion CD-ROM includes demos of Macromedia's Dreamweaver, Fireworks, and Flash 3; sample code used in the book; and Dreamweaver behaviors, objects, commands, style sheets, and inspectors. --Kathleen Caster
