What's great about this book?
It's now possible to use Dreamweaver to produce dynamic, creative, visually stunning sites that comply with web standards and accessibility laws. This book is not a rehash of a book on a previously written version of Dreamweaver, but a brand new book, written by people who really know the product and who are genuine web professionals. It doesn't waste your time on explanations of the obvious menu options (2 pages on the difference between 'save' and 'save as', anyone?) but gets straight to the heart of the matter so you spend less time reading, and more time building your site.
