CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheet. It basically helps you to create a
site with a consistent look and feel. In this 'beginner's' tutorial,
you'll learn how to use and edit style sheets that have already been
created by someone else. It's a great way to learn!
Dreamweaver CS3 has some pre-designed templates. You can also find free
templates on the web itself at places such as : http://www.freewebtemplates.com/ This
tutorial will actually use one of their templates to demonstrate how
to make changes.
FIRST, as soon as you have chosen the template. Create a Site Definition.
Click the link in the menubar to remember how to do that.
the site is defined, the list of files will look like this (names may
vary depending on the template chosen.) Now change the names to fit YOUR
site structure. If you change them within this list of files in the
site definition, the links that have already been created will also
be changed on every page. Do not have any page open while you are doing
this. Just click on the words once. Be sure to leave the .html as part
of the lile name!
In the pages to come we will deal with the [style.css] file; the ie.css
need not be altered at all and just adjusts for some things that are
missing tin older versions of IE.
