Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0764506692, Paperback)

With Dreamweaver 3 and Dreamweaver 3 for Dummies, there's no excuse for not updating your Web site. Dreamweaver 3 provides a good foundation in site design, and it outshines competing applications by offering both a WYSIWYG tool (What You See Is What You Get) and a powerful HTML text editor. While the book explores many aspects of the application, it also surveys the basics of HTML, giving readers a broader knowledge of how Web pages work.

For users who created their sites using another Web authoring application, the author dedicates a chapter to common conversion problems in Macromedia's software. Users starting from scratch will find an extensive chapter on site planning, such as deciding on functionality goals and targeting your audience.

The book begins with a review of the work environment. Then it's on to creating a site and working with the site management tools. Efficiently working with Dreamweaver requires a thorough understanding of features like Templates, the Library, Tracing Image, and History palette. This Dummies guide does a good job of showing not only how to use these, but why they're important for optimizing the creation and maintenance of your site.

This book also features a section on creating images with Fireworks 3 and using them within Dreamweaver. Dynamic HTML, layers, and behaviors are covered, including more advanced uses of these features in timeline animations. Adding multimedia like Shockwave or Flash movies, or including Java or ActiveX, may exceed early aspirations for readers of this book, yet the guide clearly explains the many options offered for implementing these enhancements.

The book concludes by analyzing sites created with Dreamweaver and offers some design and timesaving tips (including a list of online resources). The CD-ROM holds trial versions of the software plus numerous plug-ins such as HTML Rename!, a filename conversion program useful for cross-platform work. You'll also find extra behaviors and templates, sample images and Flash files, to supplement the learning process and a glossary of Web and Dreamweaver lingo useful for beginners. --Angelynn Grant

Topics covered: Basic instruction on using Dreamweaver 3, including creating a site, pages, formatting text, placing images, making links, working with tables, forms, frames, DHTML, and plug-ins; creating graphics in Fireworks 3 and integrating them in Dreamweaver. CD-ROM includes 30-day trial versions of Dreamweaver 3 and Fireworks 3, HTML Rename!, demo versions of companion software like BBEdit Lite 4.6 and the latest browsers, extra Dreamweaver behaviors and templates and sample images and Flash animations.
