Five+1 Common CSS Hang-ups In Dreamweaver

Five+1 Common CSS Hang-ups In Dreamweaver

Hey, what’s up? Sensei Zap here (cheers for the moniker, 3dogmama!) Okay now, on the issue of CSS and Dreamweaver, there seems to be some common hang-ups that really mess people up. So I and decided to get to work and explain some of these issues. So, here’s my list of five hang-ups with CSS and Dreamweaver, plus a bonus one thrown in for good measure. Enjoy!

[i][b]Hang-Up #1: What’s Up With The Format And Style Menus On The Properties Inspector?[/b][/i]

So what’s the diff between these two menus, and when should you use ‘em? Truth is, they do completely different things; lemme explain.

Pop open the Format menu on the Properties inspector, and you’ll see None, Paragraph, Heading1, etc. These are HTML block elements—they’re built into HTML. Now, as for the Style menu just to the right, this guy’ll list out any class rules that you’ve created via CSS. In other words, stuff that appears in this list is stuff you’ve created—they aren’t built into HTML.

Is this making sense? So items that appear under the Format menu are built into HTML, whereas formats that appear in the Style menu are rules that you’ve created. Okay, keep on reading to check out Hang-Up #2.

Even if you've been designing sites for a while, managing links, uploading, even working with a design team can still be challenging stuff.

Some Cool Acrobat Resources!

Some Cool Acrobat Resources!You know, I've been using Acrobat--Acrobat Professional, that is--for years and years, and I find it astonishing how little most people know about this powerful app. What makes Acrobat so unique is that it's really hard to define, and it's used in such a huge array of industries. Most think it's just used to view and print PDFs, but there's a whole world of tools, features, and options just waiting to be used to really make your PDFs sing! Best of all, it's really easy stuff.
