DREAMWEAVER MX MAGIC AUTHOR: Sean Nicholson, Brad Halstead, et al. PUBLISHER: New Riders REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades BOOK REVIEW: The very first thing you notice when you open the books is the clean page layouts and clearly written instructions. It is laid out in step-by-step, numbered format that makes it very easy to follow. As you work through the various exercises, you will notice blocks of text set in a partially framed green box. These contain various notes, warnings and tips. Dreamweaver MX Magic has plenty of exercises to work through and have graphical views of the work so you can¿t go wrong on what you are suppose to be learning. A CD comes with the book and contains the following information: all the project files, trial versions of Dreamweaver MX, Fireworks MX and Coldfusion Server MX, as well as extensions, plug-ins and a list of web links where you can get help and other information. Ever wished you could change one thing that is in every page of your web? Project 2 and 3 will help you work in a template and explain what it does to help you design better. Or how about a search engine on your site so your customers can find that certain item they are looking for without having to look through all the pages of the site? Project 8 will teach you how to do it. Then there are layers and database-drive username and password to learn in Project 12 and 13. Dreamweaver MX Magic will provide you with a solid basic understanding of a few of the special features in this new Dreamweaver/Fireworks program. If these are the programs you design in, be sure to get a copy of this book. It will be well worth the price of the book.
