Best DW Book, Apr 7, 2023
Macromedia Dreamweaver MX 2004 Unleashed is by far the best book I have seen for anyone who wants to get into the web designing business. Each section is very detailed and shows many examples of how to design effective websites. I have seen other how-to books for Dreamweaver but none of them can even compare to this publication. The authors have effectively shown step by step procedures for some of the easiest to the hardest web coding tasks you can perform with Dreamweaver.

very good in spite of the typos, Apr 4, 2023
I just wanted to "put into perspective" the one-star ratings:
A lot of people seem to find this a bad book because there are so many "errors". They are right about the errors. Yes, a lot of figures are wrong, and yes, the mentioned support site doesn't exist. But, no, this does not degrade the book. The misplaced figures are usually only misplaced by one, so that's easily bypassed, anyway, the text is so clear you don't really need the figures. And indeed, the mentioned support site is incorrect, but you can download all files at www.sampspublishing.com (it took me a full 5 minutes to figure this out, so what's the fuss?)
In all, it seems that none of the low-star reviews could overcome the occasionaly not so carefully applied cosmetics of the book, and totally missed that it's a really great book, as mentioned by the high-star reviews.

Very Disappointing, Feb 9, 2023
Being an amateur web developer, I was hoping to learn a new skill. This however was not the book to teach me Dreamweaver.
As other reviewers have mentioned, this book was filled with errors. I can understand some spelling errors or a couple of mistakes, but this was chaulked full of them. The website referenced many times was also not available. It would have been nice to have been able to download some of the samples that were mentioned.
I would not recommend this book.

Awful, Feb 9, 2023
Reasons not to buy this book: (1) has an invalid website (which is referred to MANY times in this book). How are you to train with this book when supplemental materials aren't even available? I agree with other readers -- this is VERY annoying. (2) Like other readers, I found numerous mistakes. It's obvious this book was rushed to press. I emailed the authors/publishers in early Jan 2005, and I still haven't heard anything about their site or list of errata. VERY DISSAPOINTING! Maybe I can find someone to buy this book from me, but I doubt it.

Full of errors -- companion website doesn't work!, Feb 3, 2023
This book turned out to be a big disappointment. For one, I found too many errors. There are numerous misspellings and incorrect information. For instance, part of the book defines a JPEG as a "glossy compression format". If I hadn't read numerous other books about JPEG files, I might not have noticed this. The author should have defined a JPEG as a "lossy" format.. not "glossy". I can handle a few errors and misspellings. However, the biggest issue I have with this book is the "companion" website. As many readers of training or technical books know, companion websites are important when learning. This book requests that the reader download samples files from it's companion website. Unfortunately, the website is defunct. This is a fairly new book and should be more current than it is. This book had potential, but just didn't meet my basic accuracy requirements. This book turned out to be more frustration than it's worth.
