Web-design novices

If you are relatively new to web design, this section will point you to sections of the Dreamweaver documentation that are most appropriate for your background.

For web-design novices:

  1. Begin by reading the tutorials in Getting Started in Dreamweaver.
  2. In Using Dreamweaver (Help > Using Dreamweaver), read Exploring the Workspace, Setting Up a Dreamweaver Site, Managing Your Files, and Creating and Opening Documents.
  3. Learn about page layout by reading Laying Out Pages in Layout Mode.
  4. To learn about formatting text and including images in your pages, read Inserting and Formatting Text and Inserting Images.

That’s all you really need to begin producing high-quality websites, but when you’re ready to learn how to use more advanced tools, you can proceed through the rest of the static-page chapters in Using Dreamweaver. You might want to wait to read the dynamic-page chapters until you’re more familiar with creating web pages.
