    My Favorite Dreamweaver Reference Book

    I've been using Dreamweaver for a few years now, and though I know a lot, some things I just haven't dealt with yet. Upon a teacher's recommendation, I got this For Dummies book and I have to say that every time I've wanted to learn something this book has had the answer. What I like best about it is that I only have to read a few pages to quickly learn how to do something new, like learn how to use the Show Pop-up Menu behavior. Great book! Definitely worth the money.
