Website design has advanced remarkably since the early days of putting text and images on screen. One web authoring program that has advanced at an equal rate is Dreamweaver, now available in the latest version, CS6 . Dreamweaver CS6 not only has an excellent graphical interface for quickly creating high-quality web pages; it also contains a range of powerful tools for incorporating the latest web-design elements into sites, to give them a highly professional look. Templates are provided so that you can produce stylish websites that adhere to the latest web standards. Best of all, you can do this without having to have an in-depth knowledge of HTML or CSS. However, if you want to expand your knowledge of these areas, Dreamweaver CS6 has all of the tools and support to do so.
Dreamweaver CS6 also acknowledges the fact that websites these days frequently require to be designed to work on a variety of mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones. The new Fluid Grid Layout function enables sites to be optimized so that the same content will appear correctly on whatever device they are being viewed on.
Overall, Dreamweaver is an ideal program for anyone involved in designing websites: its combination of simplicity and power makes it an excellent choice for the novice and the professional alike.
