Dreamweaver - setting CSS to inline rather than embedded
I am currently feeling very dirty - I'm having to create a newsletter and have to use Dreamweaver - errrhhhgg! Anyway, I need to get Dreamweaver place the CSS inline instead of embed it within style tags. Does anyone know if there's a way you set CSS to be placed inline as opposed to embedded?
Without getting into one of these massive 'who codes in what' debates. I guess, at the end of the day, it depends on what level of coding you're using DW for.
My personal opinion is that for what I want (cleanest markup possible), a WYSIWYG is not adequate. My experience with Dreamweaver 8 is that:-
- it's very bloated
- has an extremely inaccurate design view
- creates messy, unsemantic (style naming) markup, if you're using it for anything more than handcoding.
- it costs money.
For me, nothing can beat hand-coding and it's quicker too. Good quality hand-coded markup, in my opinion is far superior to anything that a WYSIWYG can produce. Thats unless you're using DW for its Code View- in which case, why are you choosing to use an app that is so heavy in features?
This is my personal opinion, and I don't want to start another of these Dreamweaver vs Hand-coding debates but these are just a few points off the top of my head.
I'm currently a huge fan of the Aptana IDE; it has built in code libraries, has a fairly small footprint, a pretty much seemless integration with VCS's including Subversion (which I use), so it suits me; I would personally never go back to DW
I have to agree with you redhill. As far as I can see the whole Dreamweaver/Photoshop combo is well overrated. I found the same as you with DW so din't choose it as my main editor, preferring something that only takes seconds to load
Each to their own, it's right for some but not others.
