Thanks to all those who have helped with this book (and all of my books over the years): my students, colleagues, and the wonderful people at O’Reilly. Thanks to Murray Summers and Danilo Celic for their careful scrutiny and erudite corrections to my writing; thanks also to Peter McKie for making my writing more energetic and clearer.
I’m always amazed at the number of pros it takes to create a book like Dreamweaver CC: The Missing Manual. My thanks go to out to everyone who worked on this book, including the technical reviewers. I also want to thank my wife, Joyce, for her love and support.
