Released: July 2001
Pages: 480

As the Web's popularity continues to soar, so does that of Macromedia Dreamweaver, one of the most elegant and powerful web-page creation programs you can buy. Dreamweaver deploys a rich, well-designed, WYSIWYG environment for building cross-platform, cross-browser web sites; but unlike most visual editors, it doesn't clutter up the underlying HTML code by inserting unnecessary tags that make large web sites difficult to manage. Dreamweaver is a favorite of multimedia designers, thanks to its smooth integration with other Macromedia applications like Flash and Shockwave.Dreamweaver 4 extends Macromedia's lead in the web-design market. The new, more sophisticated Version 4 incorporates the latest developments in browser technologies--and the best way to get the full advantage of these improved features is with Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual, the ideal companion to this complex software. Under the guidance of Missing Manual series editor David Pogue, author Dave McFarland brings Dreamweaver 4 to life with clarity, authority, and good humor.After orienting you with an anatomical tour of a web page, the book walks you through the entire process of creating and designing a complete web site. Along the way, a unique "live examples" approach lets you see and test, on the actual Internet, real web pages that follow the development progress of the book's chapters. Armed with this book, both first-time and experienced web designers can easily use Dreamweaver to bring stunning, interactive web sites to life.

Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual Review

Comments about O'Reilly Media Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual:

Has anyone been able to download the Ch. 7 (frames) tutorial lately? I'm working my way through the book, and was all set to work with frames today--only to find that neither the finished example nor the tutorial files was available--the dreaded "site not found."

All the other chapters seem to be available, so I'm wondering if this is just a temporary situation, while files are upgraded/whatever.

Comments about O'Reilly Media Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual:

The reader review comments refer to the tutorial files. It's not that they

are missing; it's that they are on the companion web site for this book

which is located at http://www.sawmac.com/missing/

This is mentioned in several locations in the book: actually it's mentioned

at the beginning of EVERY tutorial.

Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual Review

Comments about O'Reilly Media Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual:

The Missing Manual's Missing Website

Great as the rest of the book is, it's kind of ironic that the missing manual has a missing website. As with the other reviewer, I'm having trouble with page 24's, "In this example, you'll use the folder you downloaded from this book's website [had we uh, put the folder on the uh website]."

I'm used to O'Reilly providing great tutorial downloads and I'm sure this one's equally good - if someone could just be bothered to put it on the site and include a link to it.

Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual Review

Comments about O'Reilly Media Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual:

I'm really writing this to Joe Foat who was having trouble finding the tutorial files. If he will email me directly, I think I can help him. I did find the files and would give hime help now except that the information is on another machine, which I won't have access to until next week.

By the way, I do not find it surprising that your message was written on 8 September and there has been no reply, at least no reply from on this list. I sent an error report some days ago and have not had a reply, not even an auto-answer reply.

Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual Review

Comments about O'Reilly Media Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual:

I can't do the tutorial because I can't find where the DWTutorial1 folder is located as referred to on pages 26 and 32. Is there a CD which is supposed to come with this book?. None is referred to in my reading so far, and I have done a search for DWTutorial1 via the win98 Find File tab above the start bar, but come up with nothing. Can anyone help? or will this be a dud buy.

Joe
