IntroductionIntroduction

Dreamweaver 8 is a web page editor you can use to design web pages and to develop and organize your own website. You create web pages graphically, by inserting tables or frames, or by drawing layers (rectangular containers) to position page elements exactly where you want them. In the background, Dreamweaver creates the HTML coding needed by browsers to display the page as you see it onscreen while you're designing it. You can, when desired, view and edit this HTML code directly to refine your design.

Dreamweaver includes sophisticated and yet easy-to-use tools for designing and managing a website and its many assets: images, videos, audio files, templates, scripts, color preferences, and even URLs you reference frequently. You can work with pages on your computer and then upload them easily to your website provider's server. When needed, you can download files already on the website, make changes, and then upload the files again. For situations in which multiple people are involved in the creation of a site, Dreamweaver provides a check-in/check-out system that makes management of that site a simple process. In addition, Dreamweaver supports Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), which enable you to create styles for text, layers, tables, and other elements, and then reapply those styles throughout the pages of your website. This enables you to maintain a consistent, professional look on your site.

Using Dreamweaver, you can build dynamic websites in which users interact with a database—perhaps shopping your catalog of products, entering or retrieving customer data, searching a knowledgebase, and filling a page with live articles. Dreamweaver supports popular database server technologies such as ASP, ASP .NET, ColdFusion, JSP, and PHP.

Fireworks 8 is a graphics editor you can use to build the graphic elements of your site, such as web buttons, navigation bars, pop-up menus, and image maps. Fireworks integrates seamlessly with Dreamweaver, creating supporting HTML code for these interactive elements and making it a simple process to integrate these buttons, bars, menus, and image maps into your web pages. Large images can be easily sliced into sections you can then optimize with the image format that best suits the image data in that section. Slices can also be used to change a portion of an image when the user interacts with it, such as by moving the mouse over it. Fireworks creates the needed HTML code for Dreamweaver so that a web browser can reassemble these slices into a complete, interactive image.

Fireworks provides the graphical tools you need to build your web images, including layers that help to isolate portions of an image for specific changes, and filters that can apply specific effects such as glows, bevels, and blurs. Using frames, you can build your own animations, such as web banners and animated logos. Fireworks supports the most popular image formats so that you can optimize and save your work for a variety of uses.

    A reviewer

    I knew nothing about Dreamweaver, or html, and wanted to teach myself the software. I purchased more than a half dozen books on Dreamweaver. This book taught me more than the others combined. The pages are in color -- a must for novices -- and make the whole process easy. The book is step by step on the basics, but also has more complex answers as you get up to speed, and want an advanced looking site. See for yourself: my website is my name as shown above. Hands down the best Dreamweaver and Fireworks book. I am ordering a second copy today, to have one at work and one at home.
