Learn the power of Cascading Style Sheets in this powerful Dreamweaver tutorial by our webmaster wizard Geoff Blake.

CSS is the technology that powers most websites. Dreamweaver's implementation of this technology is by far the most comprehensive on the market. The power of CSS lies in its ability separate the look, feel, and function of a website from it's content. This gives a ton of flexibility, control and ultimately ease of use for any web designer.

Imagine designing one set of rules and aesthetics that all pages of a complex website follow. With CSS you design it once and all of your site's features "cascade" automatically throughout all of the pages.

Geoff Blake, the ultimate communicator, takes you through every aspect of how CSS works, exploring all of its intricacies and implementation... And he does it in his trademarked friendly and inventive way! You'll have so much fun that you won't even realize that your being educated! That's what makes our "Professor" Blake so inspiring!

So if you're looking to learn how to design your websites using Dreamweaver's CSS technology then sit down, get a front row seat and fasten your seat belt tight because this tutorial will quickly take to where you need to go. Enjoy the ride!
