Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using CSS visual aids, part of Dreamweaver CS6 Essential Training.
When designing pages it's sometimes extremely helpful to note what you're…looking at, or what the properties of an element are without having to resort to…using one of the panels that we've been using up 'till now.…Dreamweaver has several visual aids that you can use to assist you, when…designing your pages with CSS.…So with the programs.htm file open from the 06_09 directory, and we're just going…to show off some of the visual aids here.…Now, I of course had the foresight, because I'm the one writing the tutorial, right?…But I'd the foresight to go in and turn all of them off.…
