I was wondering if anyone has used DreamWeaver to construct HTML files for ebooks. Are there any tutorials out there? I have basic knowledge of HTML, but prefer to use DreamWeaver. Also, are there any know problems with using DreamWeaver to construct source files?
I agree DreamWeaver looks a bit hard to learn at first. But I assure you that it's the best as far as it goes. I've got a few video tutorials I can spare - they are a part of my Learn Macromedia DreamWeaver eCourse, and I'm sure you will get the hang of it once you have a look at the tutorials. Just send me an email at ***
and I'll send u the download links.
===== Update in 2004 I've had to disable the email signup links because of spam problems so the above link will no longer work. The good news is that the full dreamweaver video tutorials set can be accessed for free on my site. Just go tohttp://www.coursesuseek.com and download the eCourses toolbar for the ecourse links. ========
I use DreamWeaver exclusively to produce all my HTML flies for my ebooks and have yet to run into any problems doing so. You definitely have lots of creative control over how your ebook will look and function including the ability to include things like sign up forms and links to other web pages, downloads, etc.
Oh, and here are a few examples of the ebooks I have created using HTML files made in DreamWeaver: Blog In A Box, Webmasters Dream Kit v2.0, Little Black Box of Web Templates, Scripts2Sell Package, and Start Your Own Tarot Ebiz. I also use Photoshop for my images and Ebook Creator Toolkit 2.0 for ebook compilation.
Dreamweaver is a great WhatYouSeeIsWhatYouGet HTML editor, but like with all others, if you don't know HTML, it uses the latest html standard at that time.. means that i 2-3 years your ebooks might not work anymore.. I know that HTML is confortable to implement in an ebook.. but it has many drawbacks like you see.. I learned XHTML a few weeks ago (future standard) but I still don't like to use it for books.. I don't want to produce books that won't work in a few years . We personally implement everything into the code when programming a CD-Book (can be used as an ebook to, but it's much-much better - lots of features). Honestly, on of the main reasons I consider ebooks "cheap" is this use of HTML...
