Foundation Web Design with Dreamweaver 8

Dreamweaver is Macromedias best-selling web design/development environment, and the updated version of Dreamweaver will be available later this year. Dreamweaver has the capability to generate dynamic website code using server-side languages like ASP, PHP, and ASP.NET. We know that you don’t always require a full database driven site though, so this book focuses on using the latest version of Dreamweaver to design and create usable, standards-compliant websites using XHTML and CSS. One of the highlights of this version is much closer, tighter CSS/XHTML. This book will show you how to make the most of that feature.

After a brief introduction to the latest version of Dreamweaver, and how CSS and XHTML fit into it, Craig looks at using the software for your web design projects in a hands-on, task based manner, covering these topics:

  • Setting up a site in Dreamweaver
  • Global web site essentials, such as dealing with doctypes, meta tags, comments, and page defaults, and attaching CSS and JavaScript files to your page
  • Styling page content properly using CSS
  • Working with images
  • Creating web site navigation
  • CSS for impressive page layouts that work
  • Getting user feedback via forms

Following these exercises, the book then shows how to bring everything together with a final case study using Dreamweaver to build a complete web site.
