Updating dreamweaver

16 Apr

Jim is one of the foremost experts on XML and web design. But the most important item to know is that few other programs offer all these advantages in one place.As you can see Jim is on a mission to get more people to use Dreamweaver as an e Pub editing program. I was just perusing your “Digital Publishing” book and ran across the suggestion of using Dreamweaver as an EPUB editor, p 207. Sigil and Calibre can edit the files but they don’t make it easy and you have to do most of the work manually.This option is most useful when you want to delete a file that other files link to, but you can use it for other purposes.For example, suppose you link the words “this month’s movies” to /movies/throughout your site.On August 1 you would change those links so that they point to /movies/We recently got the following email from Jim Maivald. It offers tons of productivity enhancements that your readers should know about.If you create a document-relative path before saving the file, Dreamweaver temporarily uses an absolute path beginning with file:// until the file is saved; when you save the file, Dreamweaver converts the file:// path to a relative path.

This feature works best when you store your entire site (or an entire self-contained section of it) on your local disk.To use site root–relative path instead, you must first define a local folder in Dreamweaver by choosing a local root folder to serve as the equivalent of the document root on a server.Dreamweaver uses this folder to determine the site root–relative paths to files.Script links execute Java Script code or call a Java Script function and are useful for giving visitors additional information about an item without leaving the current web page.Script links can also be used to perform calculations, validate forms, or do other processing tasks when a visitor clicks a specific item.
