Adding Text to Your Page

In this section, we'll cover adding a bit of text to your page, just enough to get you started. You'll find a much more detailed discussion of working with text in Dreamweaver in Chapter 4. In short, adding text is a lot like typing text in any word processor.

To add text to a page:

  1. On the new page, click to set a blinking insertion point. You can press Enter (Return) to move the insertion point down on the page.
  2. Type your text. The text appears on the page, aligned to the left.

To format the text:

  1. On the Insert Bar, choose Text from the pop-up menu. The Text category of the Insert Bar appears ( Figure 3.13 ).

    Figure 3.13 Use the Text category of the Insert Bar to format your text.

  2. Using the Insert Bar and the Property Inspector, apply any formatting you want, as you would with a word processor. See Chapter 4 for much more detail about using the Text category of the Insert Bar.
