Macromedia Dreamweaver (DW) is the must-have tool for professional web developers. This book covers the features and usage of Dreamweaver 4 (DW4) on both Windows and Macintosh systems as distilled from my own experience, plus tips gleaned from mailing lists, user groups, beta testers, and my fellow Dreamweaver developers.
This book will address your questions and needs with a minimum of verbiage. Its instructions, notes, tips, and warnings apply to both Dreamweaver and Dreamweaver UltraDev. (Although this book does not cover features exclusive to UltraDev, UltraDev is implemented atop Dreamweaver and shares the same core feature set.)
This book is not a step-by-step tutorial, nor does it attempt to teach HTML or web design. Instead, it helps you leverage your existing skills within the Dreamweaver environment. Instead of explaining how to make your site popular, it explains how to efficiently create and maintain a site using Dreamweaver. This book assumes a basic understanding of web page development tools and concepts, but no particular knowledge of Dreamweaver. If you are completely unfamiliar with Dreamweaver, keep the application open while you read the book and consult the excellent Help files that accompany the product. Use the Help Welcome option for a quick visual overview of Dreamweaver.
