Macromedia Dreamweaver is a professional HTML editor for designing, coding, and developing websites, web pages, and web applications. Whether you enjoy the control of hand-coding HTML or prefer to work in a visual editing environment, Dreamweaver provides you with helpful tools to enhance your web creation experience.
The visual editing features in Dreamweaver let you quickly create pages without writing a line of code. You can view all your site elements or assets and drag them from an easy-to-use panel directly into a document. You can streamline your development workflow by creating and editing images in Macromedia Fireworks, then importing them directly into Dreamweaver, or by adding Macromedia Flash objects you create directly in Dreamweaver.
And Dreamweaver now incorporates and expands on all of the capabilities from Macromedia UltraDev, helping you to build dynamic database-backed web applications using server languages such as ASP, ASP.NET, ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML), JSP, and PHP.
About site planning
Planning and organizing your site carefully from the start can save you time later on. Organizing your site includes not only determining where the files will go, but also examining site requirements, audience profiles, and site goals. Additionally, you should consider technical requirements such as user access, as well as browser, plug-in, and download restrictions.
Once you’ve organized your information and determined a structure, you can begin creating your site.
Planning and Setting Up Your Site
A website is a set of linked documents with shared attributes, such as related topics, a similar design, or a shared purpose.
