Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Web Standards, CSS and Dreamweaver but were afraid to ask

That's the title of the first DMXzone ebook. It's a collection of the most popular articles by Molly Holzschlag and Rachel Andrew, re-edited into the first book in the Universe that teaches CSS design and development to people who are Dreamweaver fluent.

The best thing is that the book assumes no prior knowledge of CSS and doesn't baffle or bore you with theory, and throughout Rachel and Molly use Dreamweaver MX or MX 2004 to make the sites and teach you in the most natural way for a DMXzone member.

Throughout it, you'll learn how to remove presentational HTML and make a "hybrid layout", remove your presentational tables, create common layouts like two- and three- column sites, deal with old browsers, make print style-sheets, make a style-switcher so that your audience can choose their favourites from a range of styles. Your websites will be future compliant, easier to maintain, smaller to download and people will (probably) stop you on the street and ask to kiss you!

Sample Code: Each chapter in this PDF e-Book is a self-contained project, logically structured so that each builds on a previous project. The source code is attached to the ebook PDF, and can be viewed in Acrobat 6 from the Documents > File - Attachments menu. (This menu is unavailable in Acrobat 5).
