Managing CSS in Dreamweaver with James Williamson shows how to create cascading style sheets that are efficient, reusable, and easy to navigate. In this course, James shares tips on how to find and use panels and tools, and how to deploy style sheets to screen, print, and mobile environments. Course topics include creating customized starter pages, learning to rapidly hand-code CSS through using Snippets, and using Dreamweaver's CSS preferences to deploy lightweight styles. Exercise files are included with the course.
Before we start exploring Dreamweaver's CSS tools, it's worth taking a moment to discuss who this course is for. This course is for Web designers looking to take full advantage of Dreamweaver's CSS tools, or for Web developers who are used to hand-coding their CSS and are curious about Dreamweaver's capabilities for managing it. This is not a basic CSS course ,and should not be the first CSS title that you watch. The focus of this title is on managing and editing CSS. If you're new to stylesheets, I recommend any of the basic CSS titles in the lynda.com Online Training Library, or my Dreamweaver with CSS Essential titles as a good starting point.
I'll try to give equal time to both the visual CSS tools in Dreamweaver, as well as its capabilities to code CSS. If you already have experience with CSS, but are new to hand-coding or haven't used Dreamweaver's visual CSS tools, then this title is for you. It is designed to give a complete overview of Dreamweaver's CSS capabilities, as well as ways that you can effectively manage and organize your site's CSS.
