Page 113, step 4

In step 4, paragraph 2, it states that once you choose a color, the targeted Rule Field displays <inline style>. I've gone through these steps multiple times, checked and double-checked my work but don't get the <inline style> indicated in the Targeted Rule Field.

Note from the Author or Editor:
>>> On page 113, Step 2 should read: 2. Click the CSS button. The Properties panel changes to CSS mode. Note that the Targeted Rule field displays <new inline style>. You will be creating a new inline style in the following steps. As explained on page xx, Dreamweaver doesn’t store inline styles in a style sheet (internal or external), and they don’t have a selector. They’re formatting instructions attached to HTML tags in the body of the page. >>> on the same page, Step 4 should read: 4. In the Properties panel, click the color box and then choose a dark green. You could format several other properties from this panel, including the font, size, or alignment of the text you selected. And you can change more than one property at a time.

Step 9

The step wants the reader to choose the page font - "Segoe, Segoe UI, DejaVu sans, Trebuchet MS, sans-serif". The option that resemble this also has Verdana listed after Trebuchet MS. Also, it is not explicitly clear which Category of Page Properties should be chosen. It can probably be assumed but it would be helpful if it was clearly stated. In my case I chose Appearance (CSS).

Note from the Author or Editor:
>>> On page 39, step 9 should read: 9. From the “Page font” menu, select “Segoe, Segoe UI, DejaVu sans, Trebuchet MS, Verdana, sans-serif.”
