Additional Coding Tools

Although Macromedia has done a great job creating an application that allows you to build pages without having to write code, the reality is the more access you have to your code and the more tools that are available for tweaking it, the easier the process becomes when you do need to manually write code. To make manual coding easier, Dreamweaver MX 2004 includes several features that help developers write the cleanest code possible.

Dynamic Cross-Browser Compatibility Check

Coding pages for multiple browsers can be a time-consuming task, but one that ensures that your pages are presented properly to visitors. In the past, checking for compatibility meant building the page, previewing it the browser, and then adjusting the necessary code. Dreamweaver MX 2004, however, has added a new feature that alerts developers to potential issues at any time during the development process. By clicking on the Dynamic Cross-Browser Compatibility Check button, shown in Figure 4.16, you can see what code might cause problems in a wide variety of browsers.
