Learning is doing--which means you're guaranteed to expand your skill set exponentially as you work your way through the 18 project-based tutorials that form the core of this volume on Macromedia's Dreamweaver MX 2004. With its powerful combination of visual layout tools, application development features, and code editing support, Dreamweaver MX 2004 really is a Web designer's dream, and Macromedia's official guide shows you how to transform your dream projects into real-life success stories by creating and maintaining Web sites in an environment that integrates both visual editing and code editing. By re-creating the book's sample Web site, you'll learn the skills and techniques necessary to create your own widely accessible sites. In addition to the basics of creating a Web page that incorporates text, graphics and tables, you'll learn about all that's new in Dreamweaver MX 2004: dynamic cross-browser validation, improved CSS support, built-in graphics editing, and more.

The screen illustrations are actually big enough to read and understand. This is not always the case. There seems to be a general rule that publishers add more screen shots and fit them in by making them either painfully or impossibly small. That is not the case here. The shots are plentiful enough but also large enough.
The directions in the book corresponded EXACTLY to what was happening on my screen and to the examples on the included disk. Few things have been more frustrating for me in the past than to try to work through an example and then find that what happened on my system started to deviate more and more from what was described. For the first time ever, that never happened
Much of the information was very basic. That is what I needed. Someone who is merely looking to upgrade from a previous version of Dreamweaver will probably be disappointed and find the book practically useless. Beginners, though, should find this as much a joy to work with as any tutorial can possibly be.
Another thing to consider is that other books may be more useful as shelf references. This one will stay on my shelf but the nature of it is to teach through the tutorials and add extra information in those chapters. This is fine for learning the concepts but I will look for another as a reference.
