EVERYBODY, COME ON AND DO DA COMBO, MON!

In a land of HTML forms, where every drop-down list is a what-you-see-is-all-you-get affair, a treat awaits you. A number of the dialog elements sprinkled throughout Dreamweaver are actually combo boxes—drop-down lists where you can type in your own values. In some instances, this feature is a quick way to choose a specific value. For example, if you haven't made the leap to CSS yet and are still using font size attributes, you don't have to go digging deep in the list to super-size a selection—just type 7 in the Size field of the Property inspector for instant gratification. On the flip side, the Link text field is also a combo box. Some folks forget that all those URLs they entered during the current Dreamweaver session are now available in handy-dandy list format, ready to be selected.
