Macromedia Dreamweaver MX4004 Demystified

by Laura Gutman, Macromedia Press

23 X 18 cm. 1238 pages

This is a great book about a great program. In February 2005 I decided it was time I learned HTML, and create a website to display my paintings. I fired up MS Notepad and worked through some on-line tutorials. I bought the Wiley HTML, XHTML, and CCS Bible, and while I learned the basics, I felt like Iíd learned a dozen ways of creating a website, but didnít know which I should use, or why. I got the Dreamweaver program and this book. A month later this website was the result. I have yet to formulate a question about web design that the book didnít answer. I have a stack of similar books about, AutoCad, Photoshop, Illustrator, C++, etc. They are all 700 plus pages, and make it difficult to find the information you need. While Dreamweaver Demystifiedís index isnít any better than the others, because of its logical design, I always seem find what I need by scanning section headings. The bookís 1238 pages are printed on thin smooth paper, and bound so that it stays open to any page without stressing the binding. A not unimportant consideration in a book I return to so often.
