A quick desktop reference for both new and experienced Dreamweaver developers, Dreamweaver in a Nutshell distills all of the software's features, commands, and shortcuts into one indispensable book. This is the most succinct and useful Dreamweaver reference available, and the only one in the compact In a Nutshell style.

With this book, you will learn everything from document management to site management and all the details in between. You'll also benefit from the author's years of hands-on experience through the power user tips and tricks. All the information you need is here, from basics to advanced topics, including navigation bars, frames, layers, tables, image maps, modifications with XML, style sheets, positioning elements, HTML cleanup tools, and ways to extend Dreamweaver functions and functionality. Provided throughout the book are useful examples to clarify difficult techniques or solve common problems.

Dreamweaver in a Nutshell focuses exclusively on Dreamweaver, rather than distracting readers with explanations of HTML and web design. That said, the book is equally useful to Dreamweaver UltraDev, which is based on the Dreamweaver platform. Dreamweaver in a Nutshell is the perfect companion to our best-selling Web Design in a Nutshell, and it complements the O'Reilly HTML, JavaScript, and Cascading Style Sheet books available in electronic format within the Dreamweaver Reference panel.

This book's quick style and compact format make it the perfect reference for web site professionals who rely on Dreamweaver daily.
