    ALL the ins and outs of DW

    Ethan Watrall writes for the visual person! There are plenty of screenshots to help you follow what Mr. Watrall is saying throughout the whole book. When I first sat down to read DW MX 2004 Solutions, I thought I had a good grasp of Dreamweaver. As a software user for over 20 years, I should have known better. We use less than 50% of any software program¿s power and there is so much more we could do with any program if we only knew it was there. This book shows you that 50%+ you never knew existed. As I read the book, I started tagging pages so I could go back to my computer and test out these new to me areas. When I finished the book, I had 24 tags placed. I feel certain that as I continue to use these new things, there will be other ideas or questions that come up and this book will be there to help me answer them. I plan to make this a ¿by my computer¿ book. It will become one of my well-worn favorites. To describe a few of the ¿new to me¿ items I found Flash Text and Flash Buttons. I knew there was the Flash program to create your own but here were some ready and waiting for me to use in DW. Jump Menus is another thing I knew about but thought I had to create from scratch. Nope! Right there if you only know where to look. Did you know you could add a background to a table rather than the whole page? I do now. Did you ever think of printing out the site map to see exactly what you have built? It would be helpful if you are collaborating and need to take a ¿sample¿ of the site to a meeting. Even if you are ¿going solo¿, it would help to give you an idea of where you are at in the building process. Finally, I think one of my favorite things is a concise definition of .jpg, .gif and .png and when and why to use each of these formats. And don¿t forget, if you want a quick view of the abilities that are new in DW MX, look for the ¿Bright Eye¿ on the side of the page. A CD is included with this text and has several sections. The Bonus Chapter which explains optimizing. The software programs are Contribute 2; Cold Fusion, Dreamweaver MX 2004; Fireworks MX 2004; Flash MX 2004, FreeHand MX and QuickTime Player. Last but not least there are the files to go with the activities in each chapter so you can follow along with what is being discussed. All in all, this is a book I would highly recommend if you do any web building at all. Even if you are only doing a family site, this book will help you use all the neat little tricks available in DW MX 2004.
