Coding web pages by hand is another approach to creating pages. Dreamweaver provides easy-to-use visual editing tools, but it also provides a sophisticated coding environment; you can use either approach, or both, to create and edit your pages.
- You can work in a coding environment without visual tools; coding tools help you create and edit code, format code, and make sure that your code adheres to standards. (See Setting Up Your Coding Environment and Coding in Dreamweaver, and Optimizing and Debugging Your Code.)
- You can also use some Dreamweaver coding tools in Design view, the visual design environment. (See Editing Code in Design View.)
