Part: I Building Dynamic Sites > Planning the Look

Chapter 5. Planning the Look

Having spent the previous four chapters carefully walking through the planning process, the time has arrived for the site to start coming to life. The birth of a site isn't the graphics, images, and other material appearing in Dreamweaver MX 2004. Sites come to life in a rather methodical manner. It all starts with a site map showing how each page interacts with the others and the hierarchy of information. Another important map is the one that shows the interaction and data transfer between the client side—the user's browser—and the server side—the machines that feed the content into the page.

When the map is in place and approved, the next step is to create linear drawings—sometimes called “wireframes”—that reflect the placement of content on the page. This gives everyone from the client to the team an idea of where content is to be placed on each page.
