Workshop

The workshop area is meant to reinforce your reading with a series of questions and exercises.

Q&A

Q1:I need greater control of the fonts and styles in the document; is this the best Dreamweaver can do?
A1: Absolutely not! Dreamweaver offers a full-featured style sheet editor, which you'll learn all about in Day 5, “Creating Reusable Components.”
Q2:What kinds of images can I insert into the documents I create?
A2: The most common types of images used are GIF and JPEG formats. JPEG images are lossy—meaning they lose detail information as they are saved—but are great for most photographs. GIFs are limited to 256 colors, but do not lose any detail when saved for the Web. Elements that must remain clear and legible are a prime candidate for the GIF format.
Q3:What happens if I use a non-Web-safe color and view it on a 256-color display?
A3: The color will be mapped to one of the available Web-safe colors—this can lead to some rather ugly displays.
Q4:I've tried to use the crosshairs target tool to pick files for linking, but it doesn't seem to work very well. Am I doing something wrong?
A4: The crosshair tool is a neat feature, but is often difficult to use. The Site Files window scrolls a bit too easily to make precision “targeting” easy. Choosing the file directly or typing the name of a file to link to is often more effective.
