21.1. Third-Party Tag Files

The Dreamweaver4/Configuration/ThirdPartyTags folder contains the tag definition files that support ASP, JSP, ColdFusion and PHP tags. (This folder also contains GIF images used as placeholder icons for third-party tags.) The tag definition files are in XML format and can be modified to enhance Dreamweaver's recognition of server-side language tags.

If you are using a server-side language not supported by Dreamweaver, you can create additional tag files that tell Dreamweaver how to read and display third-party tags. (If creating a new tag definition file, give it an .xml extension and place it in the ThirdPartyTag folder.) After creating or updating a tag definition file, restart Dreamweaver to load the new tag definitions. To prevent Dreamweaver from rewriting code in external files, add the third-party script's file extension to the "Never Rewrite Code in File with Extensions" field under Edit Preferences Code Rewriting. See Section 18.4 in Chapter 18 for more information. The formatting options for third-party tags are also controlled by the SourceFormat.txt file, discussed in Section 18.3 in Chapter 18.
