    DW CS5 APP - CSS Help Needed

    revdave Level 1

      I'm trying to learn about using CSS in DW CS5 and I could use some help....

       

      like....

       

      - I'm a bit confused with the difference in CSS / HTML tabs in property inspector - like why is there 2 not just 1?

       

      - also working with css in tables .... I try to edit / delete / change from 1 class to another and it doesn't do what I expect - that sort of thing

       

      - also I'd like to highlight some text and simply add css to it easily - (from css window?)

       

      - any way you get the ideas

       

      Q: are there some simple DW CS5 tutorials to get me going?

          Two what?  The HTML 'tab' gives you access to HTML properties, and the CSS 'tab' to CSS properties.  Is that what you mean?

          You would have to show us what you are doing, what you expected to see, and what you actually saw.  A look at your code would be the very best way to help you with this.

          Sorry - I don't follow.  Highlight text and add what CSS to it?

           

          - any way you get the ideas

           

          Well, as a matter of fact, no. I don't.

          The very best bet would be to spend your time learning about HTML and CSS - you can do that at http://www.w3schools.com.  If you are comfortable in those two, DW will be easy.
