Dreamweaver is the tool most website developers use to design and manage professional-looking sites, but it's a complex program to learn on your own. That's where Dreamweaver CS6: The Missing Manual comes in. With its jargon-free explanations, 13 hands-on tutorials, and savvy advice from Dreamweaver expert Dave McFarland, you'll master this versatile program with ease.

The important stuff you need to know:

  • Get A to Z guidance. Go from building simple web pages to complex, interactive sites.
  • Build skills as you learn. Apply your knowledge through tutorials and downloadable practice files.
  • Create a state-of-the-art website. Build visually rich, fast-loading pages with powerful, easy-to-use tools.
  • Bring style with CSS. Add animation to rollovers and enliven your typography with new web fonts.
  • Add instant interactivity. Use pre-packaged JavaScript programs to add forms, drop-down menus, and other features.
  • Go mobile. Use jQuery Mobile to build native mobile apps, and create website designs that re-flow to fit any smartphone or tablet.
  • Discover hidden tips & tricks. Get undocumented workarounds and shortcuts.
