    Is there any book that shows you how to build a website with table? I'm using DW3 but I've seen some people design their site in Photoshop or Fireworks. What's the best way?

    Have a nice website? please show it to me to learn.

    Welcome, Stinky Mouse (interesting name )

    I believe you can get some help at a web site I highly-recommend: http://www.htmlgoodies.com

    I also recommend picking up the "HTML For Dummies" book from your local bookstore. Bought it when I first started and it was pretty helpful and encouraging.

    Hi,

    I'd recommend buying both the Visual Quickstart Guide for Fireworks and the one for Dreamweaver. However, I'd wait for the v4.0 ones, and download the 4.0 trials which should be available soon. I hear that they're way better then the 3.0.

    However, quick overview:

    In fireworks, just create your image that has (preferably) its text and everything, then use the slice tool (bottom of toolbar) to slice it and dice it. Each slice will come out as a different picture. It's even ok if the text part ends up being an image, you can always change that later. Then do file>export and export it into some folder. Open it up. There is a webpage with your table+pics in it. Open it in dreamweaver, and delete any elements where you want text instead. (NB: when creating imgs, remember to make all the colours web-savvy so that you can duplicate them with html)

    In DW, just go to the table tool and create tables. If you really want to get deep into the borders and colors and stuff, I'd recommend using the site James recommended: http://www.htmlgoodies.com to learn CSS.

    Also, another good resource iw http://www.wdvl.com They've got a ton of CSS and HTML tutorials/articles.

    Good Luck!


    ... what's the world coming to?

    You can also use a tool called PhotoWebber at http://www.photowebber.com to take an image and section it into a complete website within minutes.
