Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video HTML5 code hinting, part of Dreamweaver CS5.5 New Features.
As you might expect, the area most impacted by Dreamweaver's HTML5 support is…the coding environment.…By adding HTML5 elements and attributes to Dreamweaver's code hinting, the…process of hand-coding HTML5 becomes a lot easier.…So I have the contact_start.htm from the 02_02 folder open, and I am just going…to go ahead and do a save-as.…And in the same directory, I am going to save this as contact_structure.…
So we're just going to build the basic structure of our contact page.…The first thing I am going to do is go right between the body tags, and I am…going to do a technique that's quite common in most web pages today;…I'm just going to add a wrapper div tag.…So I am just going to open up an angle bracket. My element list comes up, and as…I begin to type, it goes through the elements.…So if I just type in 'di', I can hit Enter or Return and Dreamweaver will…finish my div tag for me.…It also supports code hinting for attributes.…So if I hit Space and then an i, it will go through all the attributes with an i.…

Q: This course teaches us how to create mobile app in the "Mobile App Support" chapter and the app works great. But when we try to upload to android market, it says that the Android Market can't upload a debug/release version. What's wrong with the app?
A: As mentioned in the movie, the Dreamweaver emulator support does not create deliverable apps. It is designed to act as an IDE and debugging environment only. From there it is up to the developer to package and distribute apps to the various app stores.
Take a look at https://build.phonegap.com/. It's an early service dedicated to creating deliverable binaries for multiple platforms. Since it's PhoneGap, it's also the same framework used within Dreamweaver, so Dreamweaver based apps should port right over.
