    I used the "from the source" book, but I think it only does version 8 of dreamweaver. Its brilliant anyway. :D

    It seems that there is one but it doesn't have a release date till sept 27th. I may give that one a try if I'm not happy with the other one. However, the missing manual one is bigger.

    I'm a mere dabbler but I have used dreamweaver for years and think it's really cool, especially when used with fireworks.

    I was under the impression the the XHTML code it produces is pretty good in comparison to other WYSIWYG web site authoring apps. Certainly i do not see many errors when validating my pages.

    A validator does care what your code looks like as long as its valid.
    The html is'nt to bad, its when you throw scripting into the mix.
    Still, its better than the rest, and you can always go and tidy up the code so it looks pretty :biggrin

    Like StuPeas said, DW is great for knocking up a site quickly, and it works really well with programmes like PhotoShop. I did website design at uni using Dreamweaver, knocked up the entire site artwork in PS, then just transferred it to DM for links and placement, then done the text flow in word and pasted that in. It's a pretty easy interface too. I haven't used it for a few years though so I've gone back to the books on this too

    I use Dreamweaver on a Daily basis. CS3 is alot better than MX 2004, but make sure you patch your copy, it has some rather annoying bugs (such as loosing ftp & site definitions every time its restarted, and messing up when switching between code/design/split view.

    Apart from that Dreamweaver is the Number 1 tool in my Web Dev toolkit. Great for Rapid development of sites, and the integration with DBMS such as Mysql or MSSQL is a lifesaver. All in all a great tool :)
