About the Author

David Powers started developing websites in 1994 while at the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation). He’d just taken on the role of Editor, BBC Japanese TV, and needed a way of advertising the fledgling channel in Japan. The problem was that he had no advertising budget. So, he begged the IT department for a corner of server space and singlehandedly developed an 80-page bilingual website, which he regularly maintained for the next five years—on top of all his other duties.

After three decades as a radio and TV journalist, David left the BBC in 1999 to work independently. He created multilingual websites for several leading clients, including the Embassy of Japan in London and Oxford Analytica. In 2003, he decided to combine his professional writing and editing expertise with his passion for the web, and began writing books on web development. This is his fourteenth so far. Readers frequently comment on David’s ability to explain complex technical subjects in a jargon-free style that’s easy to understand. At the same time, he doesn’t talk down to readers, thereby appealing equally to more experienced web developers.

David is an Adobe Community Professional and Adobe Certified Instructor for Dreamweaver. You’ll often find him giving help and advice in the Dreamweaver forums and Adobe Developer Center—to which he has contributed many popular tutorials and training videos. He greatly enjoys traveling and taking photos—all the photos used in this book were taken by him.

David has also translated a number of musical plays from Japanese into English, and he likes nothing better than sushi with a glass or two of cold sake.
