Part III: Bringing Your Pages to Life > Layers: Interactivity and Animation

Chapter 12. Layers: Interactivity and Animation

The first MTV generation has grown up—and discovered the Web. Unfortunately, putting the average home page next to the average music video is like pitting a minivan against a Maserati. If you want to keep restless eyes glued to your site, adding attention-grabbing animation and interactivity may do the trick.

Using Behaviors (Chapter 11) and a clever design tool called layers, you can make pictures dance across the screen, add pop-up tooltips to your links, and even create Web page sticky notes that visitors can drag around the window. Without Dreamweaver, such animation would require a complex mixture of HTML, programming, and Cascading Style Sheets (Chapter 8) that could leave you crying into your keyboard. You, however, as a Dreamweaver owner, can create these effects without any assistance from therapy or antidepressants.
