Dreamweaver CS3, now included as part of Adobe's Creative Suite 3, is the leading professional Web design and development application in the market, and is a must-have tool for any Web designer or developer. Dreamweaver CS3 offers new CSS layouts, a unified CSS panel, and CSS visualization tools that let users create interactive Web sites without having to delve into code. Dreamweaver users can now create dynamic interfaces using the Spry framwork for Ajax. (Spry is 99% HTML, so it's accessible to both designers and developers). Spry widgets (pre-built user interface components) let users quickly add common user interface components to Web pages. Each chapter in this full-color book contains a project that builds upon the reader's growing knowledge of Dreamweaver, while review questions at the end of each chapter reinforce the most important skills. Readers will learn how to customize a Dreamweaver workspace, apply cascading style sheets, enter headline and body text, insert graphics and rollovers, and add links to a page. They'll also learn how to add interactive elements to their site, such as behaviors, effects, and Flash video; add new code or code snippets; and publish their finished site to the Web.

SPECIAL NOTE: Before starting the lessons in the book visit for important lesson and project file updates.

Notice: In February 2009 it was brought to our attention that the URL used in the exercise "Linking to Other Pages" in the first five printings of the book had been highjacked by a malware site. The sample URL will be changed in the next printing.

We sincerely apologize for any embarrassment or inconvenience that following this link might have caused our readers.

For the purpose of completing the exercise (in Lesson 1 on page 14), the reader can substitute any valid Web location in Step 3. We suggest that readers use this URL:
