Insert body text

  1. In the Files panel, locate the sample_text.txt file (in the cafe_townsend root folder) and double-click the file’s icon to open it in Dreamweaver.

    You’ll notice that this window is in Code view, and cannot be switched to Design view (the view you’ve been working in until now) because the file is not an HTML file.

  2. In the sample_text.txt Document window, press Control+A (Windows) or Command+A (Macintosh) to select all of the text, and then select Edit > Copy to copy the text.
  3. Close the sample_text.txt file by clicking the X in the top-right corner of the document.
  4. In the index.html Document window, click once inside the third table cell of the three-columned table (the cell to the right of the column that contains the graphic and the Flash video).
  5. Select Edit > Paste.

    The text from the text file appears in the selected table cell.

    Depending on your monitor resolution, the three-columned table widens to accommodate the text. Don’t worry about how this looks right now. In the next tutorial, you’ll learn how to use CSS to format the text so that everything fits in the table appropriately.

  6. Make sure the insertion point is still inside the table cell where you just pasted the text. If it isn’t, click inside the table cell.
  7. In the Property inspector (Window > Properties), select Top from the Vert pop-up menu. This aligns the text you just pasted to the top of the table cell. If you cannot see the Vert pop-up menu, click the expander arrow in the lower-right corner of the Property inspector.

  8. Save the page.
