Dreamweaver 4 Hands-On Training is the latest, updated version of the highly acclaimed tutorial from leading Web-design trainers Garo Green and Lynda Weinman. Thousands of Dreamweaver users have learned how to use the program by simply doing the step-by-step exercises in this foolproof book. The exercises use a real-life Web site to demonstrate how to create everything from rollover effects--using automated JavaScript behaviors, to page layouts--using one of Dreamweaver 4's latest features, Layout Tables. Advanced sections of the book show how to create interactive, moving elements in your Web site, and how to download and use the hundreds of free extensions available online to Macromedia Dreamweaver users. And throughout the book, readers learn useful bits of information about HTML, online type, Web color, and more.

In addition to the book, readers get a CD-ROM complete with exercise files and informative QuickTime videos that offer additional support for each chapter.
