Special Thanks To

I'd like to thank everyone who helped me with this book: Jill Lodwig, for keeping all the ducks in a row (and what ducks!); Dori Smith, for her willingness to jump into the project midstream and share her Dreamweaver, JavaScript, Web standards, and Mac expertise; Dave Awl, for dotting what needed dotting; Becky Winter and Christi Payne, for gluing the electrons onto the pages and producing the excellent relative linking art; David Van Ness, for the initial 1.2 design; Cary Norsworthy, of course; Marjorie Baer and Nancy Ruenzel, for their diligence and patience; Wendy Sharp, Peachpit's Macromedia Press contact; Scott Unterberg, and the entire Dreamweaver team at Macromedia, for being so helpful (and speedily so) with earlier editions of the book; Mark Del Lima, who helped me with chapters 6, 13, and 14; Rachel Saunders, Brett Bowman, and my brother Matthew, who helped with editorial admin stuff and with keeping my marbles together; past researchers Karen Whitehouse, Eunice Holland, Paul LaFarge, and Sasha Magee; Adrian Chan, Christian Cosas, Derek Powazek, Jamie Zawinski, Dave Eggers, Zhenia Timmerman, Atticus Wolrab, Homeland Drifter, Bitch Magazine, and ye olde Cocktail designers, for lending me their art; the good folks behind the scenes at Macromedia, for continuing to write such great software; and many, many faithful readers who sent in comments, suggestions, compliments, questions, and encouragement.

My family gave me a great deal of support and encouragement, and I need especially to thank Joyce & Joe, my Grandparents Mueller; Uncle Bob & Kiersten & the monsters; Aunt Pat; and my mother and father, for helping me get through. I also need to thank the Caroline County Public Library, the town of Grantsville, and Joe McRobie.
