Now, we'll need to create an HTML file and a CSS file and hook the two together. Let's start by going to Dreamweaver, choose File > New > HTML. Let's choose XHTML 1.0 Transitional, so this will work all the way back in XP and as far back as IE 7 for some of the techniques we're going to use. With this brand-new file, let's choose File > Save, make sure we're in the myGallery directory. We'll call this index.html. Click Save.
Create a new file, CSS, click Create. Let's choose File > Save. Let's save this into the includes directory. We'll call this gallery.css. Click Save. Now, let's come over and select the index file. Inside of Dreamweaver, we're going to attach the style sheet into this document. We're going to choose Format menu > CSS Styles > Attach Style Sheet. Click Browse > myGallery > includes > gallery.css Then click Choose. Then say OK.
We now have our CSS file looked into our HTML file. Let's choose File > Save All. Now with our HTML and CSS file in place, in the next movie we're going to refer back to our sketch and we're going to start creating some CSS rules that are going to help us recreate our layout in HTML.
