    on anysearch engine search for free dreamweaver tutorials and you will find a wealth of information. I know dreamweaver isnt the easiest program to leran but once you get it down it will be worth it.

    Dreamweaver is great, but tough to learn if you don't know much about how to structure a web site. Try learning on FrontPage (it is probably already on your computer you use a Windows system). You will quickly outgrow Frontpage but it is easy to use and gives you a good footing to move to Dreamweaver. To make a really good site in Dreamweaver, you should learn Photoshop, and that is tricky.

    So, in a nutshell, DW is great once you get some experience in FrontPage. Don't buy DW until you have a good idea what is going on with HTML and how to lay out a site. Good luck..

    Been playing around with it a little, not the easiest to learn. Next time you see me on MSN Messenger send me a note and I'll hook you up.

    I got dream waver a few months ago and then i got fireworks and flash to go along with it. I am stell mastering them all but one you get the hang of it you can do some pretty cool stuff. I used www.cbtcafe.com to learn some basics it is free and they have quicktime movies if you want to wach rather than read.
    Just my 2 cents.
