From Barnes & NobleAt nearly 1,100 pages, this isn't just the biggest Dreamweaver CS3 guide we've seen: It's the most valuable for professionals operating in production environments.
Longtime web developer and trainer Zak Ruvalcaba quickly covers the meat-and-potatoes Dreamweaver techniques needed to create high-quality basic web sites: tables, frames, images, forms, and so forth (especially CSS -- including validation, design-time style sheets, and the spiffy new online CSS Advisor).
