    Hello there and happy easter!

    I am pretty much a beginner when it comes to websited etc...but i hope to be able to set up my own one sometime in the future!

    I have cs2 with dreamweaver on my notebook. Can anyone recommend a good book on the program? I have seen the cs3 The missing manual for example, but it seems to be for more advanced users. Does anyone know any other book that starts from scratch? And also, is there a big difference between cs2 or cs3, can i get a book for 3 even if i just have 2 on my computer?

    I would be very thankful for some advice on how i can become an expert:)

    If you're starting from scratch, don't learn how to use dreamweaver with the visual editor. Learn XHTML & CSS and use dreamweaver's code editor

    Or even better, use Coda. It's cheap and it works very well. It's much lighter on your computer than Dreamweaver too.

    As for learning HTML (and XHTML), I suggest you purchase "Html, Xhtml & Css: Visual Quickstart Guide" written by Elizabeth Castro. It's an amazing book that I still use as a reference because it's so well put together. I bought it cheap on amazone.

    Good luck!
