Hour 6. Getting Down and Dirty with HTML > Setting Code Preferences

Setting Code Preferences

There are a number of preferences you can set for viewing and maintaining code. The four categories in Dreamweaver preferences that apply to code—Code Coloring, Code Format, Code Hints, and Code Rewriting—help control the way Dreamweaver creates and displays the code in your web pages. If you are used to hand-coding your pages a certain way, don't complain about the way Dreamweaver formats it—change it!

Watch Out!: Understand a Preference Before You Change It

Don't change a setting in the Preferences dialog box if you aren't sure what it does. Many of Dreamweaver's default settings reflect the standard way of creating web pages. Change them if you need to, but know that you could inadvertently cause a problem if you change them blindly.
