An Overview of CSS in Dreamweaver MX 2004 – Page Properties Dialog Box
Page Properties Dialog Box
The Page Properties dialog box may look similar to the dialog box in previous versions, but it acts very differently.
By specifying choices within the Page Properties dialog box, developers define style attributes for the body tag. Therefore, if a developer chooses to set the background color for the page to yellow and the text color to brown, those color attributes are assigned to the body selector in the head. And, to accommodate those of us who might forget, Dreamweaver will even assign the text color to TD and TH selectors so that they will be the same color!

As a special note, the Page Properties dialog box includes settings for link colors and underlining text (choose the Links category in the Page Properties dialog box). Any setting choices in this version will define the hyperlink pseudo-class selectors (a:link, a:active, and so forth). The Underline Style pop-up menu even provides an intuitive way to choose how you should use underlines within the hyperlink pseudo-class selectors.
