Building Your First Page in Macromedia Dreamweaver 8

Chapter Description

After you've set up your local site, you can begin filling the site with pages. To do that, you'll need to create a page, give it a title, add some content to the page, and save it. To check your work, you should view the page in one or more Web browsers before you upload it to your Web server. Luckily, Dreamweaver makes it easy to view your work in different browsers. This chapter will help you get started building your website in Dreamweaver.

Titling Your Page

The first thing you should do with your new page is to add a title. The title is the text that appears in the title bar of Web browser windows, at the top of the window ( Figure 3.11 ). You'll enter this text in the Dreamweaver document window.

To add a title to your page:

  1. If necessary, open the page you want to title.
  2. Click in the Title field at the top of the page's document window.
  3. Type in the title ( Figure 3.12 ).
