    A One-of-a-Kind Tutoria!

    I recently purchased Macromedia's MX Studio and, though I¿ve dabbled a little with Ultradev 4 (Dreamweaver MX¿s predecessor), I decided needed a kick start on Dreamweaver MX. While browsing at the local Barnes & Noble, I ran across this book, and picked up a copy. I'm about half way through the book¿s 30 chapters (the author calls them 'sessions') and this is an invaluable tutorial. I only wish the expensive, hands-on Dreamweaver courses I¿ve taken in the past had offered so much. What shines in this book is Ms. Peck¿s editorial approach to web design. She¿s an experienced DW developer who can write and (I suspect) teach as well. The whole tutorial is written from the standpoint of what a developer really needs to know to build and maintain a site using DW MX. Instead of trying to show us everything we CAN do with DW, she focuses on what we SHOULD do: best design practices, tips on good work-habits, and global features of DW that turn development days into hours, and hours into minutes. For instance: I knew about the theory of liquid page design (web pages that expand and shrink with the size of the browser window), but I¿d never seen anyone explain how to put every detail of it together in DW ¿- how to set the static and flexible column widths, how to size the transparent GIFs and where to place them -- to get a page that behaves in every browser every time. In fact Ms. Peck has a whole session entitled 'Using Tables for Liquid Design.' Ms. Peck spends significant time on DW's site management tools, a strength of the product. In fact the entire tutorial is written with site management in mind. She emphasizes how templates and library items can cut production time and promote design consistency. These features have barely been mentioned in other DW books I've read, but she gives each its own session in the book. She frequently drops helpful hints into the text to guide the new designer. 'Never use Dreamweaver's click-and-drag sizing for columns and rows. It is tempting to drag a cell border and place it where you want it; it works very well in Dreamweaver. But browsers do not always ¿ or even often ¿ follow. Also, table height is automatically set when you resize columns or rows, a setting that is rarely required.' (P. 71 ¿ I wish somebody had told me this sooner!) '...I recommend that you test a new [Java]script on a new page, however. That may seem like a lot of work, but when you are working with a two- or three-part script, it is easy to make one tiny error that will affect either the script or your HTML. Once you have the script in your test document, it is a very quick cut-and-paste operation to move it into place in your working document.' (P. 128 ¿ And I thought I was the only one who messed up script placement.) I suppose it's possible to complete this book in the 15 hours printed on the cover, but I don't intend to, nor do I recommend shortcutting to anyone else. There are too many evocative 'well, I could try this' or 'I could do it that way' techniques presented. My advice is to to experiment and to enjoy the learning experience. The book is accurate (I remember only a typo or two so far), and the exercises and associated CD material work well. Note that the author expects you to have a web hoster in place by Session 5 (the CD contains a list of low-cost hosters, but I'm simulating this requirement with DW's test-site feature), and she encourages you to download an alternate browser or two to test the exercises (a requirement for web development anyway). My only caution is that, if you're looking for instruction in dynamic database creation, it's not covered here ¿ it's beyond the scope of the book which the author mentions in the Preface. Also in the Preface, Ms. Peck recommends this book to the following people: '- Beginners who want to learn web design. '- Intermediate web developers who want to fully understand Dreamweaver and enhance their site building skills. '- Individuals wh
