As the Web's popularity continues to skyrocket, so does that of Macromedia Dreamweaver, one of the most elegant and powerful Web-page creation programs available. Dreamweaver offers a rich, well-designed, WISYWYG environment for building cross-platform, cross-browser Web sites; but unlike most visual editors, it doesn't clutter up the underlying HTML programming by inserting unnecessary HTML tags that make large Web sites difficult to manage. Dreamweaver is a favorite of multimedia designers, thanks to its smooth integration with other Macromedia applications, like Flash and Shockwave.Dreamweaver MX (for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, and Windows) marks the historic union of Dreamweaver and Dreamweaver UltraDev, a package of Web-database language modules once sold separately. The new, unified program offers even more power--and Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual offers even more easily understood, witty lessons for harnessing it.As in his highly regarded Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual, author McFarland livens the book with unique,live examples,that let the reader see and test--on the Internet, itself--real Web pages that follow the development progress of the book's chapters. There's even a step-by-step tutorial for creating an interactive Web database using Microsoft's ASP programming language, new to Dreamweaver MX.In collaboration with Missing Manual series editor David Pogue, McFarland brings Dreamweaver MX to life with clarity, authority, and good humor. Armed with this book, the first-time or experienced Web designer will have little difficulty using DreamWeaver to create stunning, interactive Web sites.

Product Description

From the Publisher

As in his highly regarded Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual, author David McFarland livens this extraordinary guidebook with unique "live examples" that let the reader see and test--on the Internet itself--real Web pages. There’s even a step-by-step tutorial for creating an interactive Web database using Microsoft’s ASP programming language, new to Dreamweaver MX.

5.0 out of 5 stars A BRILLIANTLY SCULPTURED MANUAL Jan. 23 2003
This "Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual" is one brilliantly sculpture text, which provides authoritative reader-friendly information on the fine software.
With this book, any new user of 'Dreamweaver MX' would find his or her feet in a very short time. In the same vein, experienced users will appreciate its in-depth analysis of every aspect of the software, including the occassional highlights it made concerning its limitations. The outlook of this book is refined, and authoritative. Its versatility is superb. It has every important information that users of 'Dreamweaver MX' would need.
Indeed, it is a shame that profit-minded software manufacturers have consistently refused to include any sort of comprehensive users' manual in their packages. But, don't let this opportunity elude you, if you own (or use) 'Dreamweaver MX'. It is worth the asking price!

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT Dec 7 2002
By A Customer
Never done a site before and I purchased Dreamweaver MX hearing that it was the way to go but maybe a little complicated for someone new to building sites. Well, after several evenings with Dreamweaver going through all the tutorials I thought I had gotten in over my head. I figured I'd give it one more shot after getting a manual.
This book made all the difference. The problem wasn't that the software was too complicated, the problem was the lack of clear documentation. This book clarified all the confusions I had and with a few more hours I was able to get a nice site up and running. It's really a crime the manufacturers don't include real manuals any more. Because of this book, I now think Dreamweaver is the greatest (with the exception of their decision not to include a real manual in the first place).
Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy This Book - It's the only one you'll need May 19 2004
By A Customer
As an experienced technical writer, this is the first book I've read that is written in the form of a step-by-step procedure. This book is a great help to learning an upgraded version of Dreamweaver. Other authors should take note of its format. Kudos!

Really outstanding tutorial by a very good author. This book has a fun, entertaining, pedagogical but not wordy style and contains both sound advice and detailed step by step tutorials covering the fundamentals of web page authoring with DW MX. It covers with precision both the Windows and the Mac interface. After this book and some playing around you will be proficient at web content creation and ready to move on to more advanced matters like advanced use of CSS and "artistic" design. A new edition on DW MX 2004 is coming out and will probably be even better!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have..... Nov. 20 2003
By A Customer
If you want to learn Dreamweaver, this is the book for you. Wonderful examples, tutorials and the writing style is very easy to understand. This book has been absolutely invaluable to me at work and it is never moved to my bookshelf to collect dust. By far the best book I have in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The missing manual was surely missing! Aug. 3 2003
This is one of the few books that I would recommend. It has good content and tutorials that were actually helpful! I purchased the online training from macromedia and it didn't hold a candle to this book.
It has many areas that are necessary for the development of a real web site. Dreamweaver MX should purchase this content and put it in the box with the software!
There are 24 chapters that focused on the feature sets of the software. There is even an appendix with useful links.
Thanks David for taking the time to write a useful, easy to use book.

4.0 out of 5 stars as good as it gets for the developer July 31 2003
I am a developer that is usually annoyed by those visual books that assume that the reader will get a heart attack at the first sight of the code. This book was good to present most of the concepts in developer-friendly manner. And even if you skip a chapter on animation (because it's for "creative" types) or on databases (because it's "for dummies") you are still left with a solid book on how to develop, maintain, and administer your site using a developer-friendly environment.
