Creating and Opening Documents
Dreamweaver provides several options for creating a new document. You can create any of the following:
- A new blank document or template
- A document based on one of the predesigned page layouts included with Dreamweaver
- A document based on one of your existing templates
Other document options are also available. For example, if you typically work with one type of document, you can set it as the default document type for new pages you create.
In Dreamweaver, you can easily define document properties, such as meta tags, document title, and background colors, and several other page properties in either the Design view or Code view.
