Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Dreamweaver 4 is big, with enhancements everywhere: in code handling, design, and collaboration. It may have outgrown its manual -- but it hasn't outgrown Dreamweaver 4: The Complete Reference. This book covers the entire product with aplomb, from site management to JavaScript debugging, Fireworks integration to XML (and even WML) support.

This book's well organized, cleanly written, and offers lots of useful background information. For example, you'll find a two-page sidebar on preparing freelance web development contracts; and a handy checklist for what to review before your site goes live.

We found the tips especially useful: how to streamline creating metatags for many pages at once; how to use Find/Replace to tighten up your copy; how to change element properties that Netscape and IE support with different property names; how to tweak Dreamweaver to write XHTML 1.0 compliant code.

Fully half of Dreamweaver 4: The Complete Reference focuses on advanced topics. You'll learn how to save time with symbols, instances, and libraries; how to automate processes by recording them; and how to make the most of CSS. You'll even find quick overviews of database integration and e-commerce. Bottom line: this is a very useful book. (Bill Camarda)

    This Book is a Fantastic Reference for Dreamweaver 4 Users

    I find Ms. Kettell's chapters very logical and clearly worded as she takes us through Dreamweaver 4--from the basics to the more complex functions of this powerful software. The illustrations are plentiful and very useful, and there is even a color illustration section. Instructions for using Flash and Fireworks with Dreamweaver 4 are there as well. I highly recommend this book for all users--from the novice to the experienced user. In my opinion, she covers all the bases in this quite complete reference book.
