As you’ve no doubt realized by now, building a website involves quite a few steps. At any point in the process, you can easily introduce errors that affect the performance of your pages. Both small mistakes, like typos, and site-shattering errors, like broken links, occur frequently in the web development cycle.
Unfortunately, web designers often neglect to develop good procedures for testing their sites. This chapter offers helpful techniques for testing your site, and shows you how Dreamweaver’s wide array of site-testing tools can help.
Don’t wait until you finish your site before developing a thorough strategy for regular testing. By that time, serious design errors may have so completely infested your pages that you may have to start over, or at least spend many hours fixing problems you could have prevented early on.
