Something to watch for

Setting a page’s background tile

in DWMX2004:

<style type=“text/css”>
body {
background-image: url(images/FrescoTile.jpg);

in DWMX:

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" background="…/FrescoTile.jpg" leftmargin=“0” topmargin=“0” marginwidth=“0” marginheight=“0”>

Why would the new DreamWeaver use a Style as a default for something as basic as a background tile?

The Answer is because there’s a check box in Preferences (General) called “use CSS instead of html” tags.

Something to watch for.

This same option forces even simple typing to create a new Style called “.style1”. If I wanted a css style, I’d attach it as a seperate text file. Before I realized it, the heads of several html files had several different embedded styles.

Since I corrected the culprit, I can say that DWMX2004 is great. I like the pixel measurements, and especially the ability to open one page without having to create a Site.
