Web designers, web producers, and webmasters rely on one program above all others to design, build, and manage professional websites: Adobe Dreamweaver. It provides the tools you need to create everything from simple HTML pages to database-driven PHP pages. But what makes Dreamweaver so versatile is also what makes it difficult to learn. This bestselling guide offers you with clear, jargon-free explanations to help you master this sophisticated program -- and bring stunning, contemporary websites to life.

Written by veteran Dreamweaver teacher and author David McFarland, Dreamweaver CS5: The Missing Manual takes you through site creation step-by-step, from building your very first page to launching a template-driven, fully interactive site. You'll hone your skills with the help of hands-on, guided tutorials throughout the book.

-Learn how to control the appearance of your web pages with CSS, from basic to advanced techniques

-Design dynamic, database-driven websites, from blogs to product catalogs, and from shopping carts to newsletter signup forms

-Add interactivity to your website with ready-to-use JavaScript programs from Adobe's Spry Framework

-Effortlessly control the many helper files that power your website and manage thousands of pages

-Examine web page components and Dreamweaver's capabilities with the book's "live examples"

Amazing dreamweaver June 5, 2011
I feel like this textbook is better than a class on dreamweaver. It's so jammed with such good information and answers almost every question you could ever have with how to run dreamweaver. If you get any book to try to understand this highly complicated program, get this one.
