Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual

Pages: 792

As the Web's popularity continues to skyrocket, so does that of Macromedia Dreamweaver, one of the most elegant and powerful Web-page creation programs available. Dreamweaver offers a rich, well-designed, WISYWYG environment for building cross-platform, cross-browser Web sites; but unlike most visual editors, it doesn't clutter up the underlying HTML programming by inserting unnecessary HTML 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 MX (for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X, and Windows) marks the historic union of Dreamweaver and Dreamweaver UltraDev, a package of Web-database language modules once sold separately. The new, unified program offers even more power--and Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual offers even more easily understood, witty lessons for harnessing it.As in his highly regarded Dreamweaver 4: The Missing Manual, author McFarland livens the book with unique,live examples,that let the reader see and test--on the Internet, itself--real Web pages that follow the development progress of the book's chapters. There's even a step-by-step tutorial for creating an interactive Web database using Microsoft's ASP programming language, new to Dreamweaver MX.In collaboration with Missing Manual series editor David Pogue, McFarland brings Dreamweaver MX to life with clarity, authority, and good humor. Armed with this book, the first-time or experienced Web designer will have little difficulty using DreamWeaver to create stunning, interactive Web sites.

Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual Review

By R Becker

Comments about oreilly Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual:

Outstanding. I used this book to learn DwMX from scratch (after several years of text-editing HTML) to code a new web site and it did a phenomenal job. The progression from basic to advanced concepts and techniques are very well handled. Since learning DwMX, I've used the book as a reference, and it also excels there. If you're learning DwMX, or just want to get the most out of it, this book is for you.

Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual Review

Comments about oreilly Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual:

Once again (like with other Missing Manual books I've read) the authors set the standard for clear, concise, easy to digest and well written information on Dreamweaver MX. It truly is "The Missing Manual," in fact, Macromedia should be paying these guys to produce learning documentation on all of their software!

Comments about oreilly Dreamweaver MX: The Missing Manual:

Excellent source of information on DreamweaverMX. Cleared up several issues I was having with advanced forms and database connections.

Even though it's an excellent work on the subject. My wish list would include more info on connections to SQL database's and Forms using C#.

Thanks for producing the work
