How to Setup Macromedia Dreamweaver
Dreamweaver is a professional visual editor for creating and managing Web sites and pages. With Dreamweaver, it's easy to create and edit cross-platform, cross-browser pages.
Dreamweaver provides advanced design and layout tools, as well as making it easy to use Dynamic HTML features such as animated layers and behaviors without writing a line of code. Browser-targeting checks your work for potential problems on all popular platforms and browsers. Macromedia's Roundtrip HTML technology imports HTML documents without reformatting the code—and you can set Dreamweaver to clean up and reformat HTML when you want to.
