need help with dreamweaver mx and css
newbie here to using css.
the design i have in mind for a client i would like to implement this menu:
it's a site that has main pages with multiple pages within. so this type of menu would be a perfect solution.
i'm working in dreamweaver mx. i have never had to use css before until now. as a matter of fact, i have not needed to use dreamweaver much, but once again, my design skills are needed.
i'm very frusterated and no, i cannot afford an upgrade to dreamweaver cs3 or cs4.
where do i place the css? i need basic instructions here. i'm so sorry for all of this. once i figure out where to place this or using the css style sheet. etc. i'll be fine for changing the text, colours, etc.
thanks and sorry for sounding frazzled....
deirdre, there's 3 ways to insert CSS.
#1 - inside the <head></head> tags
border: 1px #FF0000 solid;
You can put all your style code in there if you wish. Problem with this method is each page would have to be edited if you wanted to make a global change.
#2 - inline CSS
while writing your HTML you style separate elements. This is really OLD school stuff and hardly done anymore
<p style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 10pt; color: #000;">Blah blah blah blah </p>
#3 - external CSS stylesheet
This...is power. One sheet with all your instructions. Making changes to the sheet makes instant changes across your pages. You create this and give it a .css extension. Place all your formatting, divs, link colors, etc. etc. in this and link to it in the head section:
<link href="nameofcssfile.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
