And they've really packed a lot of new features and improvements into this version. In this series of movies, we're going to be taking a look at the Dreamweaver interface, and we'll look at the basics of creating and managing a new site in Dreamweaver. We're going to start with foundational topics like working with text and images, adding links, and modifying page properties. From there we're going to move into some more advanced topics like styling your pages with CSS, using layers for layout, adding rollover images, and even adding audio and video to your pages.
