Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta) (May include reviews from Early Reviewer Rewards Program)
The book is not a primer; the early parts of the book do explain the workings of HTML and the makings of a webpage, but the strength of the book is that the chapters are built around answers to questions you will be asking as you build a page. Need a form? The instructions are there. Want to build with frames? The instructions are there. The same goes for building tables, creating links, setting colors and many other topics. However, YOU are the one who must have decided on what you want to do. This book helps by showing how to do it. And isn't that what you want the book for? I have not read my copy cover to cover and see no point in that. Instead, I use the book when I'm wanting to do something and need some visual examples on the doing of it. For that, I find the book priceless.
Although I find the book useful, I also have a copy of the same book that was developed for Dreamweaver MX 2004 - and the two are fundamentally the same except that chapter 13 has been renamed and somewhat reworked. For the minor differences, if you already have the MX 2004 book you may not find the CS4 book necessary. Remember, the book isn't to teach you everything, but to help you take quick advantage of Dreamweaver's features.
