Detailed Description

Book Description

As the Web's popularity continues to skyrocket, so does that of Macromedia Dreamweaver, one of the most elegant and powerful Web-page creation programs available. Dreamweaver offers a rich, well-designed, WISYWYG environment for building cross-platform, cross-browser Web sites; but unlike most visual editors, it doesn't clutter up the underlying HTML programming by inserting unnecessary HTML tags that make large Web sites difficult to manage. Dreamweaver is a favourite of multimedia designers, thanks to its smooth integration with other Macromedia applications, like Flash and Shockwave.

Dreamweaver MX (for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, and Windows) marks the historic union of Dreamweaver and Dreamweaver UltraDev, a package of Web-database language modules once sold separately. The new, unified program offers even more power, and Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual offers even more easily understood, witty lessons for harnessing it.

As in his highly regarded Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual, author McFarland livens the book with unique,live examples,that let the reader see and test real Web pages that follow the development progress of the book's chapters. There's even a step-by-step tutorial for creating an interactive Web database using Microsoft's ASP programming language, new to Dreamweaver MX.
