Hi! I am Joe Lowery. Welcome to Layouts with CSS in Dreamweaver. In this course, I will show you how to use Dreamweaver's power tools to create killer layouts. We will start with the pre-designed layout, and how they can be customized and styled to get you off to a quick start. Next, we will take a deep look into the full range of layout concepts. With that foundation, we will step through building a complete slate of basic layouts, including those for HTML5, and CSS3.

This course will also cover the spectrum of interior layout elements, and methods like Floats, Full Column, and Rounded Corners. Then we'll close it out with a look at developing layouts for mobile and tablets with Dreamweaver's Multiscreen Preview feature. An exciting layout can make all the difference to your web site. Let's get to it!
