Join James Williamson, as he shows you how to create elegant menus, links, and buttons that help visitors navigate your site faster and more intuitively. The course covers creating structured navigation that is accessible and clean, styling links, and building horizontal and vertical menus with rollover effects. The last chapter reveals how to create stylish buttons with special effects and CSS sprites.
If you're a Premium Member of the lynda.com online training library, or if you're watching this tutorial on a disk, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Exercise files for this title are arranged by chapter and are located in folders that are named based on the movie number they represent. Since each exercise is self-contained, you'll want to work with these folders individually. I recommend copying the entire Exercise Files directory to the desktop and then working on the files from the appropriate folder. I will call out the location of the exercise files for each movie, and you should see a brief overlay that will tell you where to find those particular files.
For this course, I'll be authoring my CSS using Dreamweaver. It's a common web authoring tool and an environment that I'm extremely comfortable in. By no means is this a Dreamweaver course. You can use any code editor that you're familiar with. Now I'll only be using the Code view in Dreamweaver and none of its visual tools, so as long as you can type in the code that you see on my screen, you'll be able to work right alongside with me, whether you're using Dreamweaver or not. It's also crucial that you use the most recent versions of Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera, and make a habit of testing your pages with multiple browsers.
