Now, throughout this course we're going to be coding our HTML and CSS, so I recommend using a text editor. There is a whole series of available text editors for both Macintosh and Windows. Some are paid, some are free. So here is a list of some of the most popular ones on both platforms. You can also use more visually oriented web tools, like Adobe Dreamweaver for example. You just need to have access to the source code. So no matter what tool you're using, there has to be some area where you can get to the source code of the HTML. We're also going to be using Adobe Photoshop to create some of our graphics, and you'll need to have at least CS2 or later, since we need to have access to the Slicing tool in order to create some of our optimized graphics.
Now, as a special note to Dreamweaver users, we're going to be talking about how you can set up Dreamweaver in the next chapter so that you can actually follow along in Dreamweaver. So once you have a text editor set up that you can use for this course, we'll continue by creating our project files.
