Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) have been with us since the mid-1990s. Yet, because of the slow state of browser development, it's only in the last few years that CSS has taken its rightful place at the center of modern Web design. CSS governs content presentation, while HTML and XHTML handle document structure. In this lesson, we'll take a closer look at CSS, see how it works hand-in-hand with markup, and examine the tools Dreamweaver gives us to work with CSS in a "what you see is what you get" environment.Working With Snippets
Snippets take some of the drudgework out of site design. Do you have a common element—like a document footer with copyright information it—that you're going to insert in every page of your site? Turn it into a snippet. Next time you need it, just click a button and voilà! Instant page content. In today's lesson, we'll examine Dreamweaver snippets, learn how they function, and discuss how to fit them into your workflow.Working With Dreamweaver Templates
A Dreamweaver template allows you to fix the layout of pages so that inexperienced folks can't mess them up when they're updating content. You'll learn what Dreamweaver templates do, how to build them, and how to apply them to the pages of our site.CSS for Devices
Today you're going to learn all about styling pages for devices other than the browser. We'll look at the different types of devices you can style for—smartphones, assistive technologies, and printers, to name just a few. And we'll examine some of the tools Dreamweaver provides to make styling for devices easier.Designing for Accessibility
Accessibility. You've heard the term, but do you really know what it means? Section 508 of the U.S. federal Rehabilitation Act includes rules for making site content accessible for users with disabilities. Many other countries have similar rules. Today we'll discuss how to keep Dreamweaver on the ball, accessibility-wise, so anyone can use your site with ease.Working With Media Objects
Have you been to YouTube to watch videos? Or have you been to Amazon.com to preview music? These types of audio and video files are media objects. In today's lesson, we'll talk about what software you need to play media objects and how Dreamweaver lets you place this type of content within the sites you build.Working With Dreamweaver Behaviors
When you create a Spry data set, you're making a miniature database. You can store information in something as simple as an HTML table and then have Spry go to work on it. You can pull that information into a site's pages dynamically, as opposed to typing it all into a new page. So batten down the hatches, and get ready to go all Web 2.0 on this thing!Introduction to XML and XSL
You've seen the acronym all over the place. It's time to find out how you can put XML (eXtensible Markup Language) to work. Today you'll examine XML and create a simple database. Then you'll pull data out of that database and format it with eXtensible Stylesheet Language (XSL)—all without a lick of programming!Principles of Design
If you want to design anything, you need a firm understanding of the people you're designing for. In today's lesson, we'll step away from Dreamweaver and look at the most important component of the Web—us. You'll discover how we humans read Web content and learn how to structure your content so that it fascinates your fellow domesticated primates.
