An Overview of CSS in Dreamweaver MX 2004 – CSS Styles Panel
CSS Styles Panel
The CSS Styles panel should still be very familiar to developers. The changes are slight. Instead of the Apply Styles and Edit Styles duality of the CSS Styles panel in Dreamweaver MX, users can only select and edit styles within the CSS Styles panel in Dreamweaver MX 2004. Users cannot apply the styles from the CSS Styles panel. The Property inspector’s Style pop-up menu does an admirable job of replacing that functionality.

Double-clicking a style listed in the CSS Styles panel will now open the external style sheet as a document in Dreamweaver, or will open the Code and Design view of the current document to the style definition in the head. This may be a little disconcerting at first, but it is nice to see the actual code for the styles. Clicking the Edit Style button in the bottom left corner of the panel will open the CSS style editor as in previous versions.
The CSS Style editor has seen little change, except for some wording changes in the New CSS Style dialog box.
