  • step-by-step tutorial
  • guide to the Dreamweaver interface
  • suitable for beginners, and covers
    • basic text pages
    • animation
    • forms.
    • Tables,
    • frames,
    • dynamic HTML, and
    • Cascading Style Sheets
    • Dreamweaver scripts and timelines.
    • managing projects and project assets,

    • customising Dreamweaver.
  • including a chapter on Fireworks, Macromedia's excellent Web graphics application.

It is not an in-depth treatment, nor does it explain much about HTML, the underlying code of Web pages. What it does offer is a clear hands-on guide to the key elements of creating Web sites with Dreamweaver.

This guide is aimed at developers who have Web authoring experience, but are new to Dreamweaver. It focuses on intermediate Web development topics like how to quickly build a dynamic Web site, set up frames with Dreamweaver's click and drag functionality and add interactivity to HTML pages.
