HTML was originally meant for programmers, so that they could easily put up a simple web page. But as HTML reached out to a wider audience, it attracted those who hailed from graphics design. It is to people like these that Dreamweaver is suited for. This massive text goes into the many details of the latest version. Its size is mute testament to the power and success of the program. Lowery describes the intuitive refinements in this wysiwig and drag and drop environment. Like when filling in a hyperlink inside a page. Suppose this refers to another file on your computer. Instead of manually typing in that file's path, you can drag the mouse to any file visible to Dreamweaver. Much simpler and less error-prone. The latter of course helps improve the quality of the final pages. As shown by Lowery, Dreamweaver is to HTML editing what Photoshop is to digital image editing. Another useful attraction of the book is the CD with a trial version of Dreamweaver. So you don't even need to buy a Dreamweaver to use the book.Was this review helpful?
