Okay, my FIRST piece of advice… Don’t use Dreamweaver to start out… Go to Tizag.com and read the “Beginner” tutorial and progress from there, but practice hand-coding your stuff in Notepad… When you get comfortable doing that, use hand-coding in Dreamweaver to save time… Don’t get dependant on the WYSIWYG part of it. (WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get editor, like you click “bold” and it wraps bold around stuff)
I took web design 7 years ago and have been hand-coding everything since then… I learned CSS with Tizag.com 3 months ago (btw, CSS is majorly helpful)
AND if you have the entire CS4 Master Collection, I envy you so much it might make you head explode, lol… I’m saving up for that myself. (I even get a discount through my school, but I have to come up with tuition before I can buy it)
