Acquaint Yourself with Dreamweaver 3

Dreamweaver is a HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) editor, authoring tool, and Web site management tool all rolled into one. You can do many things without ever laying your eyes on any HTML. But if you want to get down and dirty with HTML, Dreamweaver makes it easy to do so. If this is your first foray into creating Web pages, you might want to take a peek at the HTML every now and then to get familiar with HTML structure.

Note

HTML is the language of Web pages. This language consists mainly of paired tags, contained in angle brackets (<>). The tags surround objects on a Web page, like text, or stand on their own. Some tags, like the tag used to insert images into Web pages, are single tags. The beginning tag of a paired set looks like <table> and the ending tag begins with a forward slash, </table>. Tags also contain attribute values that alter the way objects look on a page. Dreamweaver inserts all of the HTML tags and attributes for you.
