Since 1996, she has authored more than a dozen books about the Internet, including Creating Family Web Sites For Dummies and the best-selling Dreamweaver For Dummies (now in its sixth edition).
Her success as an author attracted the attention of Total Training, Inc., a pioneer in innovative video-based training, where she was first contracted in 2005 to host a video called Total Training for Dreamweaver CS2. Her first video won two industry awards and she is now working on a series of Web design videos that includes Advanced Dreamweaver CS3.
An award-winning journalist, her articles and columns have appeared in a variety of publications, including The Miami Herald, Shape Magazine, and the Pulitzer Prizewinning Point Reyes Light newspaper. She also writes a regular column on Dreamweaver for Layers Magazine.
Janine has taught online journalism at the University of Southern California Annenberg School for Communication and the University of Miami. In 1998, she joined The Miami Herald as Online Managing Editor. A year later, she was promoted to Director of New Media. She left that position to serve as Director of Latin American Operations for CNET Networks, an international technology media company.
Since 2001, Warner has run her own business as a writer, speaker, and consultant.

    successfully hides most HTML

    Warner takes a reader through an easy tour of Dreamweaver CS3. No previous exposure to it is needed. An added bonus, which is made clear by the narrative, is that you also do not need much background in knowing HTML. To some people who have never dealt with HTML, it can be daunting. What Dreamweaver does is make the composition of an HTML web page as painless as possible. Typically, much of the book shows how to write a page in WYSIWIG. What you see is what you get. Click-driven and drag and drop. The grubby details of writing or inserting the appropriate HTML tags are largely (and thankfully!) hidden by Dreamweaver. So, for example, you can make line breaks in text, indent paragraphs, make ordered lists, and change text and page colours. All without explicitly editing HTML tags. There are a few sections where you get to see (and edit) the raw HTML. Perhaps skip these on a first reading. With some experience in writing your first pages in Dreamweaver, you can later return to these. The last chapter is definitely the most advanced. Talking about putting a database behind your website. The discussion is accurate. But it is only an introduction to the topic. For any realistic website with a database, consult a book devoted to the subject. Warner's writing touches on a few highlights. Enough to perhaps let you appreciate the complexities.
