Tutorial: Working with Code
As you add text, images, and other content to a web page, Dreamweaver 8 generates HTML code. This tutorial explains how to use Code view to display a documents underlying code, and how to add and edit code manually.
If youve already set up your site and completed the previous tutorials, you can continue working in the same index.html file.
If you havent completed the previous tutorials, you can still complete this tutorial. First, set up your site by following the instructions in Tutorial: Setting Up Your Site and Project Files. Next, use the index_code.html file in the cafe_townsend/completed_files/dreamweaver folder to complete this tutorial. The index_code.html is a duplicate copy of the finished index.html file from Tutorial: Formatting Your Page with CSS.
If you begin this tutorial with the completed index_code.html file, instead of the index.html file from Tutorial: Formatting Your Page with CSS certain steps and illustrations in the tutorial will not match what you see on your screen.
In this tutorial, you will complete the following tasks:
Look at the code
Switch to the coding workspace (Windows only)
Add a tag with the Tag Chooser
Edit a tag
Look up information about a tag
Add an image with code hints
