Standards & Accessibility With Dreamweaver
Webuquerque in May ‘09
This event has passed. However, the recap is available!
Adobe's Dreamweaver CS4 is a powerful WYSIWYG editor for developing and designing web sites. But it is important to know how to best utilize Dreamweaver so that your sites are standards-compliant and accessible.
Join Virginia DeBolt and Emily Lewis as they discuss the principles of web standards and accessibility, and demonstrate how to use Dreamweaver to achieve both. You will learn:
- About Dreamweaver's CSS-based templates, which have been tested across all major browsers
- About Device Central for testing and previewing your sites in moble browsers
- How to create accessible forms
- About the importance of semantic markup and how to overwrite generated markup that isn't semantic
- How to use the CSS panel for custom CSS rules
- What Dreamweaver preferences you can set to support accessibility
- How to validate your markup and CSS for different platforms
- And more!
