Chapter 6. Assembly-Line Acceleration: R... > Edible Pears versus Editable Pairs

Edible Pears versus Editable Pairs

When you’re marking an area of your document as an editable region, you need to make sure that you’re working with complete tag pairs. You either need to select content within a tag pair, or select the tag pair itself. If you don’t, Dreamweaver expands the selection until its overlapping tags are enclosed before applying the editable region—and there’s no warning that your selection isn’t proper. For example, let’s say you want to make a column in a table editable. You’d think you would be able to choose the column and then select Editable Region from the Insert bar Templates category, right? Wrong. The column designation has no equivalent in HTML tags, and so Dreamweaver marks as editable all the rows containing cells within the selected column. The right, albeit tedious, way to make a column editable is to separately mark each cell (<td>...</td>) in the column as an editable region.
