Dynamic text adopts any text formatting applied to the existing text or to the insertion point. For example, if a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) style affects the selected text, the dynamic content replacing it is also affected by the style. You can add or change the text format of dynamic content by using any of the Dreamweaver text formatting tools. (See Applying typographic and page layout elements to dynamic data.)
You can also apply a data format to dynamic text. For example, if your data consists of dates, you can specify a particular date format such as 04/17/00 for U.S. visitors, or 17/04/00 for Canadian visitors. (See Using predefined data formats.)
You can replace regular text on your page with dynamic text, or you can add dynamic text at the insertion point on the page.
