Editing Non-HTML Markup with Dreamweaver

The Dreamweaver code editor can be used to edit kinds of code other than the default markup languages (HTML, XML, XHTML, ASP, CFM, and so on), although you can’t display those files in Design view or use the Preview in Browser feature to view them. What other languages might you want? If you’re into authoring for multimedia, you might want to try your hand at SMIL (Synchronized Media Integration Language), used to build audiovisual presentations, or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), for creating vector graphics. Both of these XML-based languages are growing in popularity. If you work with Windows Media, you might want to edit the text metafiles it uses (.wvx and .wax files). If you’re authoring RealMedia presentations, you might want to edit RealText (.rt) or RealPix (.rp) files. Dreamweaver’s own XML-based configuration files also can be edited here (.mno, .dwr, and so on). Dreamweaver extension authors might want to edit their installer files (.mxi) here.

For more on .mxi installer files for Dreamweaver extensions, see the section “Packaging Your Extensions” in Chapter 29, “Creating Your Own Extensions.”
