Exploring the Composer Toolbars
You perform many activities in Composer by clicking buttons on its two main toolbars: Composition and Formatting (see Figure 18.3). Composer actually has four toolbars. It also has the taskbar, which appears at the bottom of the Composer window, but which has no role in Web authoring, and the Edit Mode toolbar, which you won't use until Chapter 26, "Editing HTML," so ignore it for now. You learn much more about these toolbars over the next several chapters; for now, it's enough just to know where they are.
