I hope you enjoyed my title on customizing Spry widgets and I hope that you'll be inspired to take a closer look at the Spry framework and the increased functionality it can bring to your sites. Remember that all the CSS and JavaScript that goes into the Spry functionality can be customized, so don't be afraid to experiment with it. For more information on Spry widgets and Spry functionality, see my Dreamweaver CS3 Beyond the Basics and Dreamweaver CS3 with CSS Essential training titles and Garrick Chow's Dreamweaver CS3 Essential Training from the lynda.com Online Training Library.
