Lesson 3 Adobe Dreamweaver
Creating a Web Page with CSS Layout


CSS Layouts

Define Site - SITE - NEW SITE
In files panel - all webpage files will reside.

Create first HTML Webpage.

Go up to the top toolbar - FILE - NEW
BLANK HTML PAGE - See preconstructed CSS Layouts
Liquid Layouts  - Fill up entire Screen
Fixed Width Layouts
Elastic Layouts (less common) (em as unit of measurement so the page scales with font size)

The doc type XHTML 1.0 Transitional

Here's where we save our stylesheet - by default give it a long name.... replace it with your special name.
Save in with site files.

Style sheet appears down in the files panel
Here is our HTML document and we still have to save that.  FILE- SAVE - NAME

So now we have 1st web page and the attached stylesheet.
Scroll up to the head of the page.
Code View - you can now see the link to the styles page.

So now all the style rules here that are now
Expand CSS Stylesheet

All styles linked to our page define the layout.

Double click on stylesheet to open it up.

Created HTML page and Created a Stylesheet

Comments - explain things.

Clean up some of the code:  This ID selector header targets the DIV element named header which makes perfect sense.  So DIV element header has background, color, but by having this CLASS prefix makes this a descendent selector so this rule is only going to apply on a page that has that Class applied to the body element.  This gives you greater versatility and lets you define different styles for the same page element over different pages.

For our purposes, we're going to eliminate this class prefix and these styles that we have defined for container and header are just going to be the same for every page in our site.


Select the text in your source code that you want to remove.
Class Prefix
Replace it with nothing because we just want to remove it.
Replace All

Go to HTML Page now.
There are a few instances of that class prefix in the html too.  In the head of document.

Edit find replace - still has the code we want removed.  three instances found.  REPLACE - click refresh.

Now remove this class that has been applied to our body element.

Give page a title then preview the page in a web browser.
