Adobe Dreamweaver CS3: Classroom in a Book

Front Cover
Peachpit Press, 2007 - Computers - 309 pages
Dreamweaver CS3, now included as part of Adobe's Creative Suite 3, is the leading professional Web design and development application in the market, and is a must-have tool for any Web designer or developer. Dreamweaver CS3 offers new CSS layouts, a unified CSS panel, and CSS visualization tools that let users create interactive Web sites without having to delve into code. Dreamweaver users can now create dynamic interfaces using the Spry framwork for Ajax. (Spry is 99% HTML, so it's accessible to both designers and developers). Spry widgets (pre-built user interface components) let users quickly add common user interface components to Web pages. Each chapter in this full-color book contains a project that builds upon the reader's growing knowledge of Dreamweaver, while review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the most important skills. Readers will learn how to customize a Dreamweaver workspace, apply cascading style sheets, enter headline and body text, insert graphics and rollovers, and add links to a page. They'll also learn how to add interactive elements to their site, such as behaviors, effects, and Flash video; add new code or code snippets; and publish their finished site to the Web.

SPECIAL NOTE: Before starting the lessons in the book visit for important lesson and project file updates.

Dreamweaver CS3: Classroom in a Book

User Review  - graphic gal - Borders

I have used most of the "Classroom in a Book" series for Adobe products and this is by far the very worst tutorial I have seen. The instructions do not match the program and are very vague, some are completely incorrect. It is not worth the money, don't buy it. Read full review
