Setting options in the General tab of the New Document dialog box

The General tab of the New Document dialog box enables you to create a new blank page or use a predesigned page.

To complete the General tab of the New Document dialog box:

  1. Select a document category from the Category list on the left.

    The list on the right changes based on your selection. A description, and, for most categories, a preview of the selected document also appear.

  2. Select a document type from the Basic Page list on the right.
  3. If you select Basic, Dynamic, or Template page types, you can make the page XHTML-compliant by selecting one of the XHTML document type definitions from the Document Type (DTD) pop-up menu.

    For example, you can make an HTML document XHTML-compliant by selecting XHTML 1.0 Transitional or XHTML 1.0 Strict from the pop-up menu. For more information, see About the XHTML code generated by Dreamweaver.

    XHTML (Extensible Hypertext Markup Language) is a reformulation of HTML as an XML application. Generally, using XHTML lets you realize the benefits of XML, while ensuring the backward and future compatibility of your web documents.

    For more information about XHTML, see the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website, which contains the specification for XHTML 1.1 - Module-Based XHTML (www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/) and XHTML 1.0 (www.w3c.org/TR/xhtml1/), as well as XHTML validator sites for web-based files (http://validator.w3.org/) and local files (http://validator.w3.org/file-upload.html).

    • If you select a Table Based Layouts page type, you can select the Document or Template option, depending on how you want to save the new document.
  4. Click the Preferences button at the bottom of the dialog box if you want to set default document preferences, such as a document type, encoding, and a file extension.
  5. Click the Get More Content link at the bottom of the dialog box if you want to start Dreamweaver Exchange where you can download more page design content.
  6. Click the Create button.

    The new document opens in the Document window.
