Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Hand-coding styles, part of Managing CSS in Dreamweaver.
If you only use the visual tools in Dreamweaver, you're really only using half the program.…Now, I know that some designers are a bit hesitant to start coding on their own,…but in reality CSS is incredibly easy to learn, and Dreamweaver's coding tools…make it the fastest way to create your styles.…In this movie, we'll take a brief tour of Dreamweaver's coding environment and…start coding by writing a simple CSS Rule.…If you're familiar with coding CSS, and just want to see how Dreamweaver's…coding environment works, stick around.…We'll be covering some of that as well.…I'm just going to go ahead and create a brand-new CSS file because we really…don't have one attached to the page yet.…
So I'm just going to go to File and choose New.…From the New Document dialog box, I'm going to go down to Blank Page and choose…CSS, and go ahead and create it.…So here we just have an empty CSS file.…I'll go ahead and save it, and I'm going to save it in the 01_08 CSS directory,…and I'll just save it as main.css.…
