Chapter 6. Assembly-Line Acceleration: Rapid Template, Library, and Page Production

Are you the kind of web designer who lovingly crafts each bit of code that goes into the page? Someone who, if you could, would sculpt the angle brackets that surround each HTML tag? If that description fits you like a wet t-shirt, then skip right over this chapter. This chapter is for working folks, designers who need to get the job done—get it done right, of course—the most efficient way possible. Because the web designer’s job is an on-going one, implementing the design and updating the site must be as easy and thorough as possible. If that sounds like Dreamweaver templates and library items to you, you’re in the right place. You want to know how much of a geek I am? When Macromedia added repeating and optional regions as well as editable attributes, I partied for three days—and believe me, Dreamweaver geeks know how to party.

Throughout this chapter, you’ll find tips detailing how best to use these advanced features and more (we threw in some general production tips for good measure). By this chapter’s end, I expect to see you whipping out templates with one hand, inserting library items with the other, while dancing an Irish jig. Or maybe a Texas two-step...anything but that Macarena dance; I’m flexible...to a point.
