Free! - Introducing Dreamweaver 8

This article is a sneak preview of the new Dreamweaver 8 e-book that will be released this month.


About the e-book

On 8/8/88, oops, 8/8/2005, Macromedia announced the coming of the next generation of their wonderful Studio and in particular, award winning HTML editor, Dreamweaver.  No longer stuck in alphabet soup, this series of 15 articles will detail and teach you how to use the new features of Dreamweaver 8.  There is a whole lot to talk about with this amazing new product and we will not only talk, but we’ll create a site utilizing the power of the program to its fullest extent.  From the Unified CSS panel to the integration of XML to the quick and easy Code Collapse, Dreamweaver 8 is chock full of goodies to make the designer’s life a whole lot easier and web sites a whole lot quicker to create.


But we’ll do a lot more than just talk.  Beginning with Part 3, we’ll create a web site that utilizes the new features and show you the nuts and bolts of how to use this new beast.  By the time we reach Part 15, you will be ready to throw out the old version forever.  So grab your copy of Dreamweaver 8 (trial available at if you don’t own it yet) and get ready to be amazed.


In this first article, we have given you a brief overview of the Dreamweaver 8 Workspace and Design View.  Please don't finish this thinking this is all Dreamweaver 8 has to offer.  We're just getting started!  Now that we've scratched the surface in Design View, in the next article, we'll move on to Code View improvements and some more new features.  You're not going to believe what Dreamweaver 8 has for you in Code View, Under the Hood!
