From the Author
I wrote this book with real people in mind.
First of all, I'm a she, not a he. :)
Contrary to the review written by an author with a competing title, this book includes much more than you'll find in any product manual. I explain each component of Dreamweaver in painstaking detail, but without being overly verbose. That's why there are so many pictures!
The book is written so that you can flip around and find the information you need to get started right away in creating a single page or an entire web site. My examples are simple enough so that the book is modular, but I include lots of cross references to other topics if you want to learn more than what you initially looked up.
If you're an absolute beginner, you can start at the beginning and work your way through, from creating a basic page, to using tables, frames, and forms, all the way to Dynamic HTML, server-side includes, and XML templates.
If you're a more advanced user, I include lots of tips, tricks, and shortcuts for both the WYSIWYG and straight HTML code modes of working.
I'm a real person, and I wrote this book for real people with work to get done.
