Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using template parameters, part of Dreamweaver CS3 Beyond the Basics.
In this movie we will continue to create the nested template we began in our…last exercise. Make sure if you are following along that the aimee.htm file is…still open from the previous exercise. Now often when creating a series of pages…like our biographies, you are going to find yourself changing the same…information over and over and over again, and in this case for each artist.…To make the process of creating those pages based off of our nested template easier, …we will use template parameters and template expressions to do a lot of…the work for us. Before we can do that, we need to save this as a nested…template, because right now it's still a HTML page.…

The background is the bottom rounded corner graphic, the bottom padding keeps the type away from the bottom of the box and thus the rounded corners, and the margin ensures that the box elements fit seamlessly with each other.
