If content is king on the Web, then certainly style is queen; together they rule hand in hand. Entering, editing, and formatting text on a Web page is a major part of a Webmaster's job. Dreamweaver gives you the tools to make the task as clear-cut as possible. From headlines to comments, this chapter covers the essentials of working with basic text; inserting and formatting dynamic data are covered in Chapter 19.
When the Internet first came online, Web designers didn't have many options for manipulating text. However, the majority of browsers now understand a number of text-related commands, and the designer can specify the font as well as its color and size through Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Moreover, Dreamweaver includes a range of text-manipulation tools. All these topics are covered in this chapter, along with details on working with text from other sources like Microsoft Office applications, including Word and Excel.
