Now use the best software -- Dreamweaver -- AND have clear, EASY instructions! Don't be stuck with NO manual from Dreamweaver (they think you should do tutorials!) AND don't be stuck reading a 600+ page "dumb for reading it" handbook which is trying to turn you into a programmer.
Step by Step Websites takes you through every screen you'll see as you develop your website with Dreamweaver MX 2004. Whether you're building a one-page minisite, a professional or a catalog site, this book will help you put YOUR site together, one step at a time and even show you how to put e-commerce on your site!
Stop building some tutorial's website. Build your OWN, and learn only as much of the program as you HAVE to, so you can get the job done -- and get on with your life! This volume also includes "11 GREAT Add-ons for Websites"--just what you need to add extras to your site.

Harold has designed websites for over 50 companies, including: Music Row Connection, World Villa Review, Patchwork Players, The Newsletter Group, Pricing Strategy Associates, and Tao Of Pricing.
Before launching his own company, he spent 20 years at a design company, where he was the key person learning each new software program, and then teaching them to the rest of the staff and to clients. (These programs include CompuGraphic MCS, A&M, Linotronic; PageMaker, Quark, Photoshop, TrapWise, Adobe Illustrator, Freehand, Dreamweaver, and Fireworks.)
"I've gone through training, spent days reading manuals, and completed a ridiculous number of 'tutorials,' but my goal was always to GET THE JOB DONE. I wasn't into 'learning for the sake of learning.' The employees I had to teach the programs to didn't care, either—they only cared about learning enough to do their jobs.
Through all of this, I discovered that the best— and EASIEST—way to learn a program was to jump in and do REAL WORK in it: NOT do tutorials— where you create something worthless and hope you learned what you need along the way. Not read manuals— where you struggle with the abstract while trying to picture it in the real world.
"This is the mindset I used in writing Step by Step Websites in 3-6 Hours. It's straight-forward, to-the-point, and no-nonsense. If you only need to use 10 command tools to complete your website, then that's what you'll learn. And... you'll learn them only when you need to use them as you build your site!
"If you want to learn some of this extra stuff later—fine. That's when the '11 GREAT add-ons' included in this book come in handy. And, at that point, Dreamweaver's reference materials will make sense. Example: A definition of a pixel isn't much help—until you've SEEN 300 pixels wide on your screen and you at least have an idea what they are.Review:
