Introduction

Welcome to the Dreamweaver 4 for Windows and Macintosh: Visual QuickStart Guide! Dreamweaver (Figures 1 and 2) is exciting software: it's simple to use and it's one of the very best WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) Web-page editing tools ever to come down the pike.

Figure 1. Here's Dreamweaver's Document window, where you edit your pages. Below it is the Property inspector, for editing all sorts of attributes, and the Assets panel, for tracking and reusing objects.


Figure 2. The Site window lets you manage your files locally and on your Web site.


Dreamweaver isn't just another visual HTML tool. It does do what all the best editors do: creates tables, edits frames, and switches easily from page view to HTML view.

But Dreamweaver goes way beyond the other editors to allow you to create Dynamic HTML (DHTML) gadgets and pages. Dreamweaver fully supports Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), as well as layers and JavaScript behaviors. It even includes its own DHTML animation tool: Timelines. And a full-fledged FTP client, complete with visual site maps, is built right in.
