New Ebook Helps Dreamweaver Users Get Started -- Dreamweaver may be the dream tool of the pros, but it can be a nightmare for newcomers and casual Web designers. Users who need help getting around in Dreamweaver and who need to put together a real site in a sensible way can now find help in the handy "Take Control of Getting Started with Dreamweaver." Written by Arnie Keller, a professor who teaches Web design at the University of Victoria, the 88-page ebook gives step-by-step instructions for creating a functional, template-based Web site that uses styles, layers, and an interactive navigation bar.

Like all Take Control ebooks, "Take Control of Getting Started with Dreamweaver" contains clickable links and bookmarks to help readers navigate efficiently and switch to the Web for supplemental material. New in this ebook are video screenshots that play mini-movies to provide live-action illustration of Arnie's instructions. The video screenshots are freely available for previewing from the ebook's Web page.
